You need to find out the EXACT type of ram (memory) that your PC requires. Memory is cheaper than a processor so you really don't want to burn up that processor. What kind of PC do you have?

My pc wont boot up how can i tell what core it is? its a Dell with 2.8 ghz intel

If this holds true,

,the Dell computer is a Dimension 8250.

If that holds true, then NO. The motherboard chipset does NOT support using a dual core processor, much less a quad-core.

The motherboard chipset used for the technology of your Dell motherboard, utilizes a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

Let's regress for a moment;

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

If you would take the motherboard out of the computer case, and stand it up in the same direction/position it was in the case, on a table; the motherboard can be viewed as a Map.

The Processor is due North, the Ram Memory slots are due East, the white long PCI slots are due South; and the I/O ports are due West.

The Northbridge chip is always close to the CPU. (Processor)
This is one reason it is named the Northbridge chip.

The Southbridge chip lays down near the white long PCI slots.
Yes. Due South.

The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

Therefore when you want to upgrade the Processor, not only take a look at what processor socket is used on the motherboard; but also see what the Northbridge chip is.

[There is more ]

HIGH-speed graphics being AGP, and PCI Express,

a) Using a graphics card inserted into a white long PCI expansion slot, is NOT high-speed graphics.
b) Using Integrated Graphics is NOT high-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

1) Anything connected to the IDE bus. (IDE is also referred to as PATA)
2) Anything connected to the SATA bus.
3) Anything connected to the USB bus.
4) Anything connected to the Ethernet bus.
5) Audio (Sound)

An example of general location using this example,

The motherboard example is clocked 90 degrees to the Left, plus a few more degrees (22?); than how it actually is positioned in a computer case.

As you can see with this example, the Northbridge chip has an aluminum finned Heatsink on it. They run hot, and need to be cooled.
The Southbridge chip in this example does not use a Heatsink.
Most newer motherboards do.

The motherboard chipset used on the Dimension 8250 motherboard, is an Intel 850E.

One of the first Intel chipsets to start supporting Intel Pentium 4 processors.
Age, my man. This baby is O-L-D.

Dual core processors weren't even heard of then. They hadn't come out.
Much less quad-core processors.

Fourth listing down in the Chipset column. 850E

Northbridge is Intel 82850E
Southbridge is Intel ICH2. Part number is Intel 82801BA

Just spotted this.

Should mean you are running an Intel Celeron, or Intel Pentium 4, that use a Socket 423.

Seriously? RDRAM?
That ram memory technology has been left way behind.
Rambus DRAM. (Dynamic Random Access Memory)

Plus the price of Ram Memory is out-freaking-rageous!
For the price of 1GB of RDRAM, you could buy 4GB of Sdram
DDR, DDR2, or DDR3.

Advise get rid of that motherboard.

Processor? Nope. Can't reuse. Why? It's a Socket 423 Intel processor. They use RDRAM ram memory.
Intel made a deal back in the day, that they would manufacturer Intel processors utilizing a Socket 423, and RAMBUS ram memory,

I have an e-machine D730Z..the power is on but doesnt display anything in the monitor. how could i possibly trobuleshoot ds kind of problem?

basically to troubleshoot a display failure on your laptop follow the procedures below.u need a star screw driver to help you take the laptop apart.
1.get to the bottom of the laptop and take off the memory bay cover.clean the metallic side of the memory and insert it back into the memory slot.power on the laptop and check if problem is solved,if not
2.connect your laptop to an external monitor and power on the laptop, if problem persist
3.then there is a likelihood of it being either the video graphic array(VGA) or the bios chip needs an update depending on the processor of your laptop.
4.if your laptop comes with an AMD processor then I'm certain it a VGA problem
5.but if your processor is the INTEL type then you have to flash or update your firmware bios chip via hardware or can either change the bios chip or flash it.
6.a floppy or a pen drive will be needed to make a bootable bios flash software. solve a VGA problem u need to take it to a professional technician to warm the VGA chipset in order to get contact with the motherboard.better still if you have a hot air device you can take your laptop apart and warm the VGA chipset on the motherboard.afterwards exerting a little pressure with a piece of cloth on the VGA chipset to make it have contact with the motherboard.

    Shuts down after running 2-3 min wont restart.Power supply is ok

    check the processor fan if is blowing well . if the processor fan is blowing well then check if the processor is not too hot for you to add a cooling paste on it and then the problem if that persist then check the memory module and re-sit it on another slot then blow then blow the other slot out in case of dust ok

    I want to use a better vga but it isnt any port

    Without a VGA port, you can't use a VGA card, pretty simple stuff.

    If you want to add a video card, you will need to get a PCI video card (NOT PCI-E!) There are a number of them out there, and pretty much anything made in the last 3 to 4 years will be better than the on-board video...

    PCI cards don't function

    as been have ssen in picture and specs of your mainboard you have a integratd vga vard and a agp slot. so solution may be this
    with old integrated vga open bios program go to disply and choose pci input first. this enable you to boot from pci slot with a new vga save setting switch of computer put on new pci vga and try.
    if no option to activate pci init first , sorry you can not boot any vga from pci , but only from agp slot.

    get a debug card, put in the pci slot, put the processor, memory, hdd keyb, mouse on the place, double check it..turn on the power , read the last post code that for the blink of the 3 keyb lamp during power on...if there is no blink..then your o/b vga not initialized by the bios and (maybe) reading the other exp slot.
    if there is a blink then check your monitor and cabling..record the last post code that display on the debug card (POST code display card), shutdown then remove all your device except for processor,ram,debug card , vga(if any external)...turn on the power again..did the post code is different or its the same with the last time?
    shutdown,remove the ram, and vga (if any ext vga)..power up again (with only debug card and proc) did the code display the same or no ?
    remove the proc and still with the debug card inserted in the slot..power up...what in the display?same?
    you should be able to diagnose that..may be the proc (code 00 C0 C1 C2 ), may be the ram...maybe your o/b vga was dead..maybe your bios rom was still have bug (ECS ??=>does have a 2-3 years i right?)
