    I have an nvidia 9500 gt graphics card, 2gigs of ram as well. im not looking for deep specs and it isn't running slow, i just want a processor upgrade so i have a bigger criteria of games that i can access

    It looks like it is a Intel D945GCCRG1/ Gateway 4006181R Board. According to the specs it supports:

  • zink0326 Dec 30, 2013

    Intel Core2 Duo processor in an LGA775 socket with a 800 MHz system bus, Intel Pentium D processor in an LGA775 socket with an 800 or 533 MHz system bus, Intel Pentium 4 processor in an LGA775 socket with an 800 or 533 MHz system bus, and Intel Celeron D processor in an LGA775 socket with a 533 MHz system bus.

    To know exactly what can be installed I would have to know the model number that is printed on the mother board itself. This would mean opening the computer.

    To be honest a processor update would not open you up to much more in gaming. The computer, motherboard and processor, have been discontinued.

For CPU upgrade it is hard to say without more information. These machines can have several different mother boards. Take a look at the mother board and find a Model number. With what you gave it looks like it runs a Pentium 4 641.

However, when systems get slow they may need a clean out. I use CCleaner to clean excess files and the registry out. But make sure to have a backup.

Other then this speed for gaming depends on what type of CPU, memory (RAM), motherboard, etc. that you have. There are so many products on the market, so exact details are needed to see what is slowing you down. Also, if frame rate, FPS, is an issue then, Do you have a video card that is not integrated on the motherboard?

Hi!

The best processor you can use with your GA-K8NE ( socket 754) is the AMD Athlon 64 3700+ Newcastle. It has 1MB of L2 cache, system bus of 1600 MT/s.

This processor is supported on both revisions of the motherboard (rev.1.x and rev 2.x)

Useful Tips to Choose the Best Gaming Motherboard


Motherboard is the heart of the whole computer system. It is the part that connects all the other parts together and make sure they run smoothly. As such, choosing the best gaming motherboard is the most important task that you need to do when building a gaming computer. This article will teach you how to choose the best gaming motherboard.

Decide which type of CPU to use

This may seem irrelevant to choosing a motherboard. In actual fact, this is the most important thing you need to do before selecting a motherboard. The reason being that the type of CPU will determine the type of motherboard you need. For example, if you choose an Intel CPU, then you have to get the socket 775 motherboard or else the CPU won't fit into the motherboard. Deciding on the type of CPU will help you to make a better choice when choosing the best gaming motherboard.

Determine if the motherboard supports the type of CPU you have chosen

As mentioned before, if you are using an Intel CPU, you have to get a socket 775 motherboard whereas an AMD CPU requires a socket AM2 motherboard. In addition, some of the older socket 775 motherboards do not support dual core processors (even though they use the same socket) or even quad-core processors. Check out the manufacturer's website to get confirmation before you buy the motherboard.

Overclocking feature

If you are overclocking your CPU, you have to get a motherboard that allows you to change the FSB speed and CPU voltage in small increments.

RAM support and no of memory slot

Your motherboard must be able to support DDR3 RAM, for a simple reason that DDR3 is currently the fastest RAM in the market. Extra thing to take note is the maximum speed of RAM that the motherboard supports. Some motherboards can support only up to DDR2 667MHz RAM while the latest ones can support up to DDR3 1066MHz.

In addition, you may want to upgrade your RAM in the future, therefore your current motherboard must have at least 4 memory slots and can support up to 16GB RAM so that you have the option to upgrade in the future.

SLI/ Crossfire ready

SLI / Crossfire ready motherboard means that you can make use of two identical high performing graphics card to render the graphics, thus achieving a faster and more realistic video effects. Not every motherboard supports this feature. As video effects getting more and more advanced, it will be soon that SLI or Crossfire technology becomes the standard for video display. Therefore, even if you are not using this technology now, it is still advisable to get a gaming motherboard with SLI or Crossfire feature.

SATA 2 controller

SATA2 can transfer data at twice the speed of SATA 1. When it comes to gaming, every single speed counts and that increase in speed might be the deciding factor in your game. A SATA 2 port is backward compatible with SATA 1 devices, but not the other way round. It is better for you to get a motherboard that supports SATA 2 devices. In addition, if you are using RAID, then you have to get a motherboard that has four SATA 2 ports.

Extra Features

You might want to consider extra features such as extra USB2.0 ports, firewire, integrated LAN and front-panel LED when choosing a gaming motherboard. Some of the motherboards contain more features than the other and you have to compare around to see the differences.

Features such as integrated sound and video are not as important in the best gaming motherboard since they could not contribute well to a good gaming session. For a gaming computer, you have to get a separate graphics card and sound card so as to play the latest game in the market.

Conclusion

When getting the best gaming motherboard, it is worthwhile to do some market research and compare with various boards. Since it is the most important part in the whole computer system, don't ever scrimp money on it.

Like to replace my processor which is AMD Duron 900MHz to Motherboard Gigabyte 7VM333M-RZ. Which current processors are compatible with this board? Please advise. I want a current fast processor.


Hi, As far as I can see, this motherboard is very old, and the faster processor you could get would be around 1.8 ghz, single core. Here's the list of supported processors:
http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Gigabyte/7VM333M-RZ.html
What I would suggest is that you buy a motherboard/cpu combo, then you could get a quad core with a recent motherboard for less than 150-200$. Of course you'd have to be willing to change your motherboard, but unfortunately, you're not gonna get a good processor with your current motherboard, and computer parts (like Ram, hard drives, video cards) are going to cost more and more for their rarety, while they are less performant.
Best of luck to you!

What is the maximum limit of Processor my OPTIPLEX GX26- can support? i have currently 2.4ghz processor working and i want to now what is the max limit i can upgrade it to, can i place intel core duo?


Sorry, the GX260 can not support a intel core duo. The processor sockets do not match the motherboard.

Also, it can handle any pentium 4 processor that uses an 800MHz bus speed, because the highest bus speed that the GX260 motherboard supports is 533 MHz. The fastest processor available for the GX260 is 2.6 GHz.


Here are the tech specs:

Can i upgrade the processor


you didn't mention your current processor speed. The maximum processor speed that you can install is 2.2mhz and still depending on the type of motherboard you currently have. If what you currently have right now is just a little less than that of the highest possible CPU that your board can accommodate, it's not advisable then for a CPU upgrade. Better upgrade also your board and/or just upgrade your memory for an additional speed.

Personal computer problem..


The only way you'd be able to increase your current processing power would be to overclock your processor with is usually not recommended or covered under your warranty. The best and easiest way to increase your performance is perform a system upgrade- Find out the highest speed/voltage processor that your motherboard supports, and do the same for ram. Then buy them and install them.

If it just takes a long time to boot up and it's doggy when windows is running then go to start--> run and type in "msconfig" without the quotes. disable everything you don't recognize under the startup tab. it's also good to do a malware/spyware scan on your pc.

Hi,
yeah possibly, providing you,ve got the sys-bus speed to go with it, and plenty of Matched Speed RAM.
And a good quality heat-sink paste, heatsink and fan.
You,ll be thrashing the capicitors to the max, with everything running. but you,ll get 3-6 months probably.
