F you want model #s, Dell support will furnish them. However, the GX260 is a P4/400,533 FSB system, so a 2.4 would not pose a problem.
I've installed 2.8 before with no worries.
Good luck

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:

My gateway essential 400 cant run newer programs **** *** window 7... or explorer 8... or flashplayer 10... how can i upgrade my computer 2 make it run these programs ? a new hard drive ? or what do i do...


Hi,

You can add hard drive if your system doesnt have enough space for the new programs. If the new programs installs well but is running slow or not starting, then you will have to upgrade your RAM and for better performance, fix one graphics card suitable for *********** board. If you can spend more, Upgrade *********** board and processor.

Thanks

UPGRADING FROM PENTIUM 3 PROCESSOR TO PENTIUM 4 PROCESSOR


To upgrade from a Pentium 3 to a Pentium 4 processor, you would have to replace the motherboard. The Pentium 4 processor has more pins on it than the Pentium 3 and would not sit in a Pentium 3 motherboard.

Processor upgrade


Hi ryonsdad,

I checked out the Latitude D610 laptop, and you'll be glad to know that you have the following processor upgrade options:

1.) Pentium M 780 Processor - 2.26 GHz, 2MB, 780, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB (fastest upgrade)
2.) Pentium M 770 Processor - 2.13 GHz, 2MB, 770, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
3.) Pentium M 760 Processor - 2.0 GHz, 2MB, 760, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
4.) Pentium M 750 Processor - 1.86 GHz, 2MB, 750, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
5.) Pentium M 740 Processor - 1.73 GHz, 2MB, 740, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB (slowest upgrade)

You can buy these processors from Dell Spareparts or otherwise from a 3rd party store.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

UpGrade


you could only upgrade the processor and RAM in this condition i.e.

you can only change your an upgraded p-III processor like 1.0 GHz, 1.1 GHz or 1.3GHz and
upgrade the RAM by changing to 256 in each slot.

that is all what u can do with ur pc

Well mishel, its a little yes, a little no. yes you can upgrade your processor, but not all the way to 4.3ghz, with whats in your computer now, the only processors that will fit are of socket 478, its one of Intel's older chips. There faster chips to date clock in around 3.0-3.4, and that's with four cores, if you need a faster chip, you need to get another motherboard, and with your case that can be a problem. The best processor I could find was 3.0ghz and under $100 on newegg.com. Good Luck

Usually you can use Northwood-core CPU-s on mobos with Willamatte-core CPU. But is important (exept core) - FSB support of your new processor. Which model of your CPU? What the mainboard use (model)?
