It's hard to say because Socket 775 is very much an outdated (2003) socket. In all honesty it will not be worth an upgrade because your gig of 533mhz ram will bottle neck it, so you won't actually notice a difference because all the other components will drag it behind so you won't see the effect of your upgrade.

Honestly. Save up ~$400-$500, go to an online store that sells packaged computers (do your research, some can rip you off). This is probably the best computer I could find for $500:

But this should only be a reference, do some shopping around!
PS. Don't forget to have an install disc of windows, 95% of these PC's done come with windows.

Hi i using ASUS P5GV-MX Motherboard i want upgrade processor so kindly give me specifications


Hello take a look here at the homepage:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5GVMX/#CPUS

Here is the list of supported cpu for the mainboard.

Your mainboard use Socket 775 for Intel Pentium 4.
This cpu type is phased out.
But you can always look for a used one.

You maybe have to upgrade the bios to support a bigger cpu.

Hope this was helpfull

Does dual core processor support Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H mother board


The Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H motherboard has a LGA 775 Socket. It will support Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, and Core 2 Duo processors with an FSB of 1066 (800MHz). Thus is should support the dual core 775 processors. (Some Pentium 4, Pentium D and Celeron D CPUs may also be compatible with the board.)

I hope this helps.

How to recognise a pin and pi nnless processor


A pin Processor has metal pins on the bottom of it.

For an example let's use an Intel Pentium 4 processor, that fit in a Socket 478 processor socket.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium_4/TYPE-Desktop%20Pentium%204%20Willamette.html

Viewing the link above, observe the green square under the grayish metallic looking square.
The green square is a circuit board.
(Width and length, about the length of your first digit on your thumb)

The grayish metallic square, is a metal shell cover over a Chipset.
Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

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

The Integrated Circuit here is the Processor.
The Processor is connected to the green circuit board. (PCB. Printed Circuit Board)

On the bottom of the green circuit board are contact pins. In this case 478 of them. (478 pins)

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium_4/Intel-Pentium%204%201.7%20GHz%20-%20RK80531PC029G0K%20%28BX80531NK170G%29.html

The tiny metal contact pins fit down into matching socket holes, in the processor socket.

A Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

(You can click on the photo to the upper right to enlarge it.

The next design to come out, has the Processor with contact pads, (Pinless), and the processor socket has the contact pins.
An LGA 775 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775


Example of a Pentium Dual Core's bottom side. (LGA 775 processor socket is used),

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium_Dual-Core/Intel-Pentium%20Dual-Core%20E2220%20HH80557PG0561M%20%28BX80557E2220%20-%20BXC80557E2220%29.html


There you have it.

A 'Pin' processor has metal contact pins on the bottom.

A 'Pinless' processor has metal contact pads.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I want to upgrade my core2duo processor to i5 or i7, is it compatible to my motherboard a6252d


Hi rlcaralde,

Your motherboard will not support intel i5 or i7 processor .
Reason:-
In this motherboard socket 775 is used. It only support intel Pentium 4, Core2due etc..

So, if you want to add i5 or i7 processor you need to by new motherboard.

Thanks.

I need a motherboard that can use the same case and everything els as the p4vmm2 My case is the ATX with Intel celeron 2,4GHz


you can use any ATX mainboard into an ATX case, they are universal. Your cpu will only fit boards with the same cpu footprint so you need to know what socket your cpu is.. lga775 is most common now. I would advise a Gigabyte EP45-UD3LR board. Excellent board and well worth the outlay.. no issues with windows xp or vista and you can expand drives and ram as you wish..

Acer Veriton M464 E4700 2.6Mhz cpu upgrade on MCP730 Mobo


Go to www.newegg.com and whatever you want to upgrade click on that item and match it up with your current board (by looking at the specifications and matching them). I suggest to buy a new mobo and all new processors and ram. You can use your old case, hard drive and all that good stuff that is removable.

How to install CPU- Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 into a asus barebone system P4-P5N9300pc please?


This particular CPU is not on the list of processors supported by this board. See "CPU Support List" tab:

ASUS P4-P5N9300 Spec

How to install Socket LGA 775 CPUs:

Lift up the cpu slot load plate (which covers the pins and also locks the cpu in place) and install the processor slowly, vertically and carefully into the socket without bending any of the tiny pins in the motherboard socket. Lock the load plate.

The advent of the LGA 775 form factor moved the tiny pins from the CPU to the motherboard socket. Great for Intel, not so great for motherboard manufacturers. Now bent pins are the responsibility of the board makers. Customers with bent pin problems are no longer contacting Intel.

Will this CPU be compatible with this MOBO?


Okay your Processor is not supported by your System Board. I will take some time and look to see what would be a good upgrade, but it may take a few days.

Its up to you which type of processor you get but now you have the general idea.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
