Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have an old p4 system and a stack of p4 processors lying around, my question is how can I find out what the fastest speed processor my mobo can handle is without the manual. I've started dxdiag from the cmd menu and my system model is listed as 679222g and manufacturer as IBM. It was originally in a netvista desktop pc but can't really remember much more than that. At the mo it's running a p4 1.8g but I have a few p4's of diff speeds but no idea if my board will run them. Please if anybody knows anything about this board, throw me a lifeline, I'm drowning here. Thx much

    Why don't you just try them. If they will post and load a OS then they are ok for that board.

As near as I can determine, the fastest CPU supported is 2.2 Ghz. for more clarification and information regarding this model, start here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-42590

What is the maximum limit of Processor my OPTIPLEX GX26- can support? i have currently 2.4ghz processor working and i want to now what is the max limit i can upgrade it to, can i place intel core duo?


Sorry, the GX260 can not support a intel core duo. The processor sockets do not match the motherboard.

Also, it can handle any pentium 4 processor that uses an 800MHz bus speed, because the highest bus speed that the GX260 motherboard supports is 533 MHz. The fastest processor available for the GX260 is 2.6 GHz.


Here are the tech specs:

Processor upgrade


You have a P4 Processor.... a 3.0 was the fastest. I would not upgrade the processor. You can however upgrade the Motherboard if you can do it yourself. That will take you to a SATA Hard Drive system and allow you to afford some faster RAM and Cheeper RAM.

Another option: get 1 gig of ram, new Hard Drive and Win7. Speed improvement will be double.

check your pin packging. if it is 478pin packaging then you can upgrade only to that.
but the current processors use lga775 packaging. check the processor pin packaging before upgrading.

Processor upgrade


Not a realistic proposition. So many other parts of the Mother board are 'tuned' the a specific processor Big Name manufacturer- like Sony/Dell etc., tend to design custom MoBos and processors as an integrated unit so the -upgrades are limited to memory or PCI cards etc.
