Question about Dell OptiPlex GX150 PC Desktop
I own a DELL OPTIPLEX GX150 desktop tower, not the slim one. It has a Intel Pentium III 933MHz with 64MB RAM. I just updated the bios from A06 to A11. I want to upgrade my Intel Pentium III to a Pentium 4 2.0GHz or better 2.50GHz and atleast 1GB RAM. I'm using it for games mostly such as Command & Conquer collection and Command & Conquer 3 I just recently got. I also just recently got this desktop offline for what I'm wanting to use it for, since most people told me I should get a desktop tower becuase they can be upgraded as much as you want. and my IBM ThinkPad T40 isn't really good for playing games on with having a 14" screen.
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.
