The pentium d 915 is a dual core processor, albeit a bad one. You should check google for info on your motherboard to see if it supports Core 2 duo's/ Core 2 quads. I have an E6600 overclocked to 3.0ghz and it still plays games perfectly paired with my 8800gt 512mb and 4gb's ram. I definately recommend upgrading to a core 2 duo. I used to have a pentium d 915 and it was bad for gaming and the e6600 blows it out of the water. You most likely wont find the e6600 anywhere as it is nearly 3 years old. Look at sites such as toms hardware to find a good core 2 duo.

Good luck- an t-adh leat!

You haven't said how much memory is on the board. You just might get away with putting more memory on it. If you want the dual core processor then you would have to find a processor ship that fits the 775 socket.

hello velayojoel

my name is ausi.

if the asrock web site says 2gig is the max then that is it. the only other thing to check on their web site is the bios version. see what version is your bios and if a bios upgrade can help. otherwise the only thing to do is to replace the board if you want higher processor speed.

hope this has helped somehow.
good luck

You need a Bigger HDD, you need another Motherboard capable of at least Core 2 Dual Core, or better, plus at least 4 GB or DDR RAM. Really be best to sell that PC, and use the money to build your own.

no, you cannot upgrade to a core 2, and, even if you could, your board would slow the chip down.

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.
