Sir; the only recommendation I can give you is to go to the manufacturer and ask their advice. Or better yet, if you give me the socket number I can give a list of all the CPU's for you to choose from.
My name is Constantin (arzconst)

Needupgrading my cpu


ztz198,

On the top of every Intel processor is the sSpec Number, and the part number.

Intel Core2 Quad, that operates at a maximum frequency rate ('Speed'), of 2.66GigaHertz,.........hmmm,

Gateway Support indicates if the option is a Core2 Quad core, it will use Up To a 1333MegaHertz, Front Side Bus frequency rate, ('Speed'),

[1333MHz FSB]

http://support.gateway.com/s/desktop/2009/gateway/dx/dx4822/DX4822sp2.shtml

That 'narrows' it down to about 6 different processors.

Starting with the Yorkfield-6M Core technology, based on the 45NanoMeter architecture. (45nm),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#.22Yorkfield-6M.22_.2845_nm.29

1) Core2 Quad Q8400
2) Core2 Quad Q8400S
3) Core2 Quad Q9400
4) Core2 Quad Q9400S

Then on to the Yorkfield Core technology, based on the 45nm architecture,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Yorkfield_.2845_nm.29

5) Core2 Quad Q9450
6) Core2 Quad Q9450S

The maximum frequency rate of 2.66GHz, is actually a low estimate. It is a little higher, and rounded off to 2.67GHz.

BIOS Setup might state 2.66GHz, but a better program like CPU-Z, IMHO; will state 2.67GHz. A more realistic figure.

Does it REALLY matter? Yes, and No.

This way when you get into a conversation, with fellow minded computer geeks, you will stand out as one who knows; what hardware components he/she is using.

Also helps you determine what voltage range is being used.
What Instruction Sets are being used.
What technology is being used, and use it to know if the upgrade CPU will indeed work.
Also whether a BIOS upgrade is needed.

I'm guessing it is the Intel Core2 Quad Q8400.

How?

I cheated, lol!,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883113110

Intel Core2 Quad Extreme at a maximum frequency rate of 2.93GHz?
That would be the Intel Core2 Quad Extreme QX6300,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Yorkfield_.2845_nm.29

Based on the Kentsfield XE technology, and 65nm architecture.
Uses a 1066MHz FSB.

Motherboard chipset is the Intel G43,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

(Scroll down. Is not in 'alphabetical order'. It is past the P45, and G41 )

Yep. Should work.

Makes me wonder though, about how you addressed the Thermal Paste; situation.

The old Thermal Paste MUST be THOROUGHLY cleaned off, and fresh, new Thermal Paste PROPERLY applied.
CANNOT reuse old Thermal Paste.

CANNOT reuse a Thermal Pad, IF used.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/274

Do I also assume the inside of the computer case is spotlessly clean, to include the Heatsink sitting on the CPU; and the cooling fan for it?

Heatsink was sit on CPU flat?
Cannot be even a little tilted.

For this reason I remove the motherboard, and install Heatsink.
Then I can hold the motherboard at eye level, and look across.

If a tiny crack of light shows on one side edge, of the Heatsink; then the Heatsink is NOT sitting flat.

This = No.

Four screws with springs on them, hold the Heatsink to CPU, Joe?
Yes. I know. This is so you cannot over-tighten the Heatsink to CPU.

You CAN however keep tightening, until the motherboard breaks, though. (Jus sayin')

However, if the screws are not tightened in a crisscross fashion, and tightened in incremental stages; the Heatsink may not be sitting flat.

Will await reply before going further. Post back in a Comment.

joecoolvette

Hi!! my home pc specification , intel p4 865gvhz , 3ghz cpu speed, 512 mb ram. what are the possible upgradation i can do n my pc? how can i improve my graphics?


You can upgrade system memory up to 2Gb and additional can add a AGP graphics card. This is the only way but i'm not recommending this because you can by new generation cpu+motherboard+memory under 10k it will be the better choice than upgradation. Buu AMD CPU ... always better than Intel (comparing the price value)

you said that you want to upgrade ur 1.79ghz celeron cpu.

to upgrade a cpu just check that the packaging of the new cpu matches with the motherboard.
and also check that the motherboard supports the new cpu that you are installing. check this in the manufactures site.

Your current motherboard is an mATX form factor. I recommend staying with that form factor for your new motherboard if staying with your current case. When upgrading to the new board you choose don't forget that you may need to upgrade the power supply unit also. You should upgrade to either a socket AM2+ board with dual core amd cpu or socket 775 board with Intel Duo Core2 cpu.

P4 ugrade required


Sadly you wont find any 1066Mhz FSB processors for the Socket 478. The best you can find is the 3.4Ghz with 800Mhz FSB. It might be cheaper and also better value for you to get a Socket 775 based motherboard and Core2 Duo processor. The value range E2160/2180 processors or the E4300/4400 processors have been tested to be even faster than the Socket 775 Pentium Dual 3.4Ghz and they also use less power.

An article on socket 478 for you http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/display/20040123103754.html
