Well your pretty limited as far as upgrading the processor since you would almost certainly have to change the motherboard, besides the processor is quite fast. If your interested in mainly gaming the first thing I would upgrade is the RAM maxing it out. For the E521 your looking at a max of 4GB http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Dimension%20E521 this website is a great place to buy RAM. You probably only have 1GB in the computer now so I would recommend added another 3GB to hit the 4 max this will cost you about $65 at crucial.com
Graphics... http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4111742&csid=ITD&body=MAIN#detailspecs Geforece 9500 runs about $65 this card along with the memory increase or check out tiger direct for other PCI express graphics cards ****NOTE***** your E521 only has a 300Watt power supply so if you upgrade the graphics card and the RAM you will also need to get at least a 400Watt, 500 Watt recommended power supply to handle the added RAM and graphics card.

Audio install


I would say that your system should run it. Depending on what version you are trying to run, you exceed the minimum requirements (For processor).

If your able to get it up and running I may suggest that you change the acceptance for Rosetta in your firewall (Assuming that you have one running). It could be the reason that you cannot activate.

Dell E521 getting no video from the board. repair guy say's I need a new motherboard.


Could be but you could also try a PCI video card, much cheaper, you may even be able to borrow one just to confirm the problem.

Also, I suggest check all your video drivers are up to date.

Main fan on dell dimension e521 on full blast when comp on


Do you have your PC in some sort of enclosed space with little ventilation? If so, the constant fan activity is your PC trying to keep things cool inside. With little ventilation comes great heat, and PCs like it cool.
