Hiya

as this pc is skt 775 and has dual core support then it is quite likely that the e5200 will work but may need a bios update to support this cpu...

just goto dells site and choose the pc u have and select drivers then download the lastest bios, transfer it to the dell pc run it as its a self extractor system will reboot perform the update then bobs ya uncle.......pop in new cpu and hey presto cheapo ugrado

#and as for the graphics card you will need to accertain which pcie version u have as most dell pc's only have pcie v1 so wont be able to handle the newer gpu's on the market.......

hope this helps

What cpu will my mb support


http://www.fixya.com/support/t17051839-gateway_e210882_motherboard_specs

'Always learning'

What a commendable trait to have Mr.Valle. I respect that.

[When you are a member, just click on anyone's user name to view their account. I have been here over 3 years, and am an ex-expert moderator, is how I know ]

This solution is going to be rather long, I hope you can put up with me.

1) Was not aware that Gateway has an e210882 mobo.
(MOtherBOard)
Thought that was an Intel motherboard made especially for Dell.

Things we learn,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Gateway-eMachines-T5086-LGA775-Intel-Desktop-Motherboard-I-O-E210882-PERFECT-/300874674719?pt=Motherboards&hash=item460d87321f

Also lists it for the eMachines T5086 desktop computer, too.
My intel states the eMachines T5086 uses an Intel D945GCL motherboard.
Hmmm,....................

In the link above scroll the page down to the Specifications.

Two things to note here;

A) Processor socket
B) Motherboard chipset

The processor (CPU) socket is an Intel LGA 775 socket.
Also known as the Socket T,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_T

The motherboard chipset is just listed as - Chipset.
The motherboard chipset is an Intel 915G,

Here we see the Intel 915G chipset ONLY supports Single-Core
Intel processors.
Intel Pentium 4, and Intel Celeron D.

The Intel Celeron D is NOT a dual core processor, as the D suffix may seem to imply,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celeron_D#Celeron_D

"The Intel Celeron D processor works with the Intel 845 and 865 chipset families.
The D suffix actually has no official designation, and does not indicate that these models are dual-core.

It is used simply to distinguish this line of Celeron from the previous, lower performing Northwood and Willamette series, and also from the mobile series, the Celeron M (which also uses 3xx model numbers)

Unlike the Pentium D, the Celeron D is NOT a dual core processor."

Supports Intel Pentium 4, and Intel Celeron D processors; that have either a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus; or an 800MHz FSB.

And use the LGA 775 processor socket,

A) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_.2890.C2.A0nm.29_2

B) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Celeron_microprocessors#Celeron_D_.28single-core.29

[Note* MT/s is MegaTransfers per Second.
Thought to be a more accurate method of measuring, than using the MegaHertz method. MHz.

[ Incidentally;
Mega = approximately 1 Million.
Giga = approximately 1 Billion.
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.
Named after a man with the last name of Hertz.

A Processor (CPU), that is stated to operate at 2.4GHz, is the same thing as stating it will operate at 2400MHz.

2400 Million Cycles per Second.
Has a frequency rate ('Speed') of 2400 Million Cycles per Second ]

That is for CPU support.

As for graphics card support, let's go back to the Ebay link, and click on a photo.........

Immediately above the specifications are photos. One large main photo, and 5 smaller views.
I invite you to click on the Top small view, and the one to the Right.
Picture 2 of 5.

Here you see the two White - PCI expansion slots.
Motherboard mounted in the computer case, the long Black expansion slot above them; is a PCI Express x16 slot.

Below them is a Black - PCI Express x1 slot.

The expansion slot you want to use for a graphics card, is the PCI Express x16 slot.

When the PCI Express technology first came out, it wasn't even named PCI Express yet.
Upgrade versions through the years are;

PCI Express 1.0a
PCI Express 1.1
PCI Express 2.0
PCI Express 2.1
,and presently it is PCI Express 3.0

How to know which PCI Express technology, is used for your motherboard?
Simple. Look at the motherboard chipset.
Looking back at the Intel 915G chipset again,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_chipsets

Here we see it was brought out in June of 2004.
The PCI Express 1.1 technology did not come out, until 2005,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#PCI_Express_1.1

This means to me, your motherboard utilizes the PCI Express 1.0a technology.
Since it was on the cusp of development, I'll bet it is actually based on the PCI Express 1.1 technology, though.

PCI Express 2.0 and PCI-Express 2.1; are Backward Compatible, with PCI Express 1.1

Stated another way;
A motherboard utilizing the PCI Express 1.1 technology, will support a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, or PCI Express 2.1 technology.

"PCIe 2.0 motherboard slots are fully backward compatible with PCIe v1.x cards.

PCIe 2.0 cards are also generally backward compatible with PCIe 1.x motherboards, using the available bandwidth of PCI Express 1.1.

Overall, graphic cards or motherboards designed for v2.0 will work with the other being v1.1 or v1.0a."

[ v = Version ]

You will not get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card, or PCI Express 2.1 graphics card.

Will you notice? Doubt it unless you plan on running the newer intensive games. Your processor won't support them anyhow.

[ A graphics card has it's own Processor, and ram memory.
The Graphics Processing Unit {GPU}, and graphics memory.

Doesn't need to borrow from the system resources; the Processor and Ram Memory on the motherboard. (System resources)

However, the graphics information still needs to pass through the Processor. This can be a 'bottleneck', if the processor can't keep up.

Also;
I just stopped using a Gateway 7200X, whose motherboard has an Intel 915G motherboard chipset.
I was using an ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card on it.

The ATI Radeon HD5450 is based on the PCI Express 2.1 technology.

Not really a graphics card to 'write home to Mom about'.
I am using two monitors at once though, and it supports my Adobe Photoshop 7 really well.

( HP 2009m - 20 inch widescreen LCD monitor, and an
RCA L26HD31, HDTV as a second monitor. A 26 inch HDTV ]

So you know that your motherboard will support a PCI Express graphics card, based on either the PCI-E 2.0 technology, or PCI-E 2.1 technology.

(The PCI Express slot has a Lock on one end. It looks as though you GENTLY press down, to install a graphics card.
This = No.
You Gently lift UP on the Lock a little )

The next thing you need to be concerned with, is what the Power Requirement for the graphics card is.

This should be stated in the System Requirement section, of the information about the specifications of the graphics card.

Be aware however, that the Wattage stated is for a COMPLETE computer system, and not the graphics card alone.

For example;
States 400 Watts.
Means power needed for a gamer type motherboard, the CPU, Ram Memory, optical drive/s, and fans.

The graphics card manufacturer builds a computer test system, based on the best hardware components.

This way they will know the power requirement they have stated, will work.

Still don't know of any graphics card's out there, that use more than 150 Watts by themselves. However I may be 'out of touch'.

Your motherboard probably needs 85 Watts.
Each ram memory module uses about 15 watts.

CD/DVD drive about 25 watts.
EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

If ALL of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt, and are not worth worrying about when determining wattage usage.

You'll have to look your CPU up by it's spec's, and see what the Maximum Wattage used is.
This is under the heading -> TDP
Thermal Design Point.

If you need me to clarify any of the statements above, post back in a Comment.

Compatible upgrade processor for intel pentium


The E5200 would be a nice upgrade. It retails on Newegg.com for 65-69.00 and usually has free shipping. And if you have a compatible motherboard and purchase a nice heatsink, it overclocks very nicely.

Is My Computer Compatible With New Graphics Card?


You need to know if *********** board supports PCI-E, since your new VC is an PCI-E device. Check the mobo's manual if this can support PCI-E, if it is then it will be compatible (the next thing is the OS, check if the card supports your OS).
