What is the service tag? Pentium 4 2.8 GHz is the fastest they put in them according to Dell, but not all of them have the hardware to support the 533MHz Front side bus.

I have an AA A83421-107 motherboard, E210882. I want to upgrade the video card and was wondering what the details are for my mother board?


Your model 4500 has an AGP slot for video cards. The Accelerated Graphics Port (often shortened to AGP) is a high-speed point-to-point channel for attaching a video card to a computer's motherboard, primarily to assist in the acceleration of 3D computer graphics. Since 2004, AGP has been progressively phased out in favor of PCI Express.
Here is a link to the technical specs of your motherboard:

Looking for what kind of processor upgrade


Well it seems you can go up to at least a 3.6GHZ processor. It is socket 775, so any Processor that will fit will in all likelihood work fine. As for the hard drive well I like 7200RPM 8MB Cache 3GB/sec SATA drive. or similar spec, & truthfully one brand is as good as another... But if forced to say.. well Seagate.
Also if you want a fast machine RAM as MUCH as you can put onboard and afford.
I have found a manual here for you. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim9100/en/D86630LRs.pdf

Can dell dimension 5100 run windows vista? Does it have a dual core processor?


Your computer can handle it hardware wise, the issue your going to run into is you need to find the vista version of your hardware drivers since the Dell website doesn't have vista drivers for your computer.

Need graphic card upgrade for Dell Dimension 4500 w/ pixel shader


This is an older machine that has a 4x AGP port for graphics cards. The good news is that cards for this slot are cheap...usually in the 30-50 dollar range. The downside is that you wont get the greatest performance out of them. I would recommend going with a Geforce FX 5200.

I want to know what speed my board will handle for the processor


Per Dell documentation, your computer has a NVIDIA motherboard with AM2 socket. Both the dual core processores support this socket. So, the board should be able to take it. However, the Maximum temperature and wattage for both is different.

Upgrade cpu


It is a bit of a crapshoot trying to upgrade a processor from a major manufacturer. Their motherboards are designed specifically for the manufacturer and documentation on exactly what will work NOW compared to when the unit was new is rather hard to come by. They don't support people upgrading very well compared to the aftermarket manufacturers.

You should go to dell.com and put in your service tag to check your exact configuration yourself before spending any money.

According to Dell, the Dimension 5150 has a motherboard that uses the Intel 945G Express chipset. You can see INTEL'S documentation on that chipset's capabilities here. According to that documentation you can use a socket LGA775 with up to a 1066 MHz system bus speed.

Looking at Newegg, the fastest LGA775 processor with 1066 MHz are a 2.93GHz Duo core or a 2.4 GHz quad core. Again, no guarantees either will work with your system, and you definately want to make sure your power supply and case cooling are up to the task.
