Which board d685gbf can I replace with for the latest upgrades speed and everything?

Intel D865GBF,

Above is for reference only

"Which board D865GBF can I replace with, for the latest upgrades?
Speed, and everything?"

None, Joseph.

If I take your question literally;..............None.

The latest upgrades for Intel is their Core i processor line-up, based on the Sandy Bridge micro-architecture, and Ivy Bridge 22nm manufacturing process,

[ Intel Core i was first based on the Nehalem micro-architecture, ]

The Processor socket isn't even the same.
The motherboard chipset is of a different architecture.
The ram memory slots are DDR3 Sdram.

This means NOTHING from your old computer setup will work.

Doubt the Power Supply even has enough Wattage, or voltage on the 12 Volt power rail.

Means you need;
1) An Intel Core i processor
2) Motherboard that supports that Intel Core i processor
3) Ram Memory that is supported
4) Power Supply

In otherwords a new computer.

Upgrade with the hardware components you have?

Lemme see.................

The Intel D865GBF motherboard chipset is an Intel 865G,

Scroll down to 865G in the left column. (Springdale)

A) Processor support:
Intel Celeron, Intel Celeron D, Intel Pentium 4, and Intel Pentium Extreme Edition.

Has to use 400MegaHertz, OR 533MHz, OR 800MHz; -> FSB.
(Front Side Bus)

Has to fit in a Socket 478 processor socket,

B) Ram Memory support:
DDR Sdram at either 266MegaHertz, OR 333MHz, OR 400MHz.

Ram memory TYPICALLY, operates at HALF of the processor's Front Side Bus.

C) Graphics:
The graphics expansion slot is an AGP. Uses AGP 8X graphics cards,

D) Storage:
If you are using an IDE (PATA) harddrive, and not a SATA harddrive; there is another problem.

E) Optical Drive: (CD/DVD drive)
Can be IDE (PATA) optical drive/s, but newer mobo's are going to SATA.

Forget about it. By the time you upgrade you could buy a budget computer, that uses at least an Intel dual core processor, and DDR2 Sdram ram memory.

Maybe Intel Core i processor, and DDR3 Sdram ram memory.

Plus there is one more factor:
The Operating System

When Windows is put on a computer it assigns hash values, to certain major hardware components.
For example;

A) Processor
B) Motherboard chipset, and BIOS program. (To include version and date)
C) Harddrive
D) Graphics chipset

Change any TWO of these components, and Windows will 'think' it is being stolen. Taken off of that harddrive, and put on another computer.
This = NO.

Microsoft User's License states, "One GENUINE copy of Windows per ONE computer"

(Microsoft makes one Master disk of the Operating System.
From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer )

You MAY be lucky, and the Windows activation screen will come up.
Then you just re-activate. (Not Register; Activate)
You also MAY not.

Means you will need the Restoration Disk for YOUR computer; or a new Genuine copy of Windows.

DO I sound discouraging? Sorry. Don't mean to be.
Just don't want you to waste your hard earned money, and also wind up with a dud for a computer.

I have intel D865GBF mother board with the support of Hyper threading Technology with 512MB i want to upgrade the ram to 1 GB .....So my question is , can I use 1GB DDR2 RAM in this motherboard?

One easy way to find out for sure how much RAM your computer can hold is to go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER feature.

This handy utility will scan your hardware configuration and tell you exactly how much RAM memory you currently have installed and what type it is.

It will also tell you how many RAM slots are fitted on your motherboard and what the maximum memory capacity for each individual slot is, as well as the maximum total RAM that the motherboard can handle.

If your computer does have room to add more RAM, it will provide you with specific recommendations as to exactly what type and size of RAM stick to buy in order to maximize the memory capacity and performance of your computer.

Thank you very much and good luck.

You can start with the CPU. Here is a list of supported processors for your motherboard.

Then your RAM can be increased. See this page for approved/tested RAM modules:

If you should install 4 1GB modules, you will only show 3.5 if you use a 32-bit operating system.

The third thing you can do is to add or upgrade a video card. This board has an 8X AGP slot. It is compatible with 0.8V or 1.5V cards only. Install one with the greatest amount of memory you can afford. Suggest 512MB or 1GB.

Those are the main improvements you can make to this, or any board for that matter.

Good luck. Thanks for using Fixya.

Graphic card for GA-8IPE1000 series

HI there.
There are loads of makers of memory and graphics cards out there to choose from.
For the ram i would recommend Corsair or Kingston, you can get this ram as a matching pair so the both run at the same speed, the best ram to get is DDR 400.
As for the graphics card, i recommend ATI radeon X1650 Pro 512MB graphics card.
These upgrades will make your machine purr like a kitten with an excellent gaming experience.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!
