No. Even if it could you could only use 1ghz of a 3 to 4 ghz processor. You will need to buy a new motherboard in order to do that. Here is the specs. let me know if it isn't the right computer.

How to upgrade RAM in a Dell-optiplex gx150 from 512mb to 1gb ?


After installing the new boards restart your computer and it should recognise the new boards and install the drivers for them. They'll have to come from the internet most likely.

DELL OptiPlex GX150 Upgrading


The fastest processor you can install in a GX150 is a Pentium III 1.13 Ghz processor.

The Socket 370 was a design used only for P3 processors.

Max RAM for that system is 512MB no way to upgrade past that.

If you paid $100 for a GX150, you paid way too much (You can buy a refurbished Dell Dimension C521 for $225 at their refurb site)

DELL OPTIPLEX GX150 Upgrade to Intel Pentium 4


Upgrading to a PIII to a PIV usually requires a new motherboard. Especially with that kind of speed you want to go to. The processor uses a different socket set and requires a different motherboard to absorb twice as much heat as you are putting out of the computer right now (the faster the processor, the more heat is released). Power supply should be around 400 watts as well because you will be needing a different cooling system as well.

Motherboard upgrade for Dell GX150


If the motherboard you have installed accepts a socket 370 processor and you replaced the board, it would also have to be a socket 370 unless you were planning on upgrading the processor also. If you wanted to keep your existing computer case and other hardware, you might want to look for an inexpensive pentium 4 motherbard and processor to replace it instead of the pentium 3 you now have. If you get a new board that uses the same memory that you now have installed it would be a relatively inexpensive upgrade.
