First for you to know if you really need to upgrade Select "Ctrl + Alt + Del.

It will display the Task Manager. Then click "Performance"

Just check the CPU usage.

Go back and do your normal job. Run programmes as you used to do, work as you use too.

Then check the Task Manager again if it goes anywhere near 90%- 100% you will need to upgrade.

Go back to your "Desktop" and Right Click the "My Computer" Icon and click "Properties".

From there you will see the type of Processor you have on your PC, its capacity and the RAM as well.

Processor: Intel Celeron, Pentium, AMD: Athlon, Sempron........ 

Don't just go and buy any Processor or else it may not be able to serve the purpose you needed.

You have to inquire to know the right Processor to upgrade with.

After then, you are good to go and buy the specified processor and fix.

My first bet would be to download the belarc advisor ( Google it) it's free and it would tell you what you want to know about your pc.

Secondly, then go to the manufacturer's website for your motherboard. There you should be able to find information as to the upgrade path that your motherboard and your BIOS in particular can support.

Finally, remember Google is your friend. You can get alot of info that way.

Good luck, and I hope you find what you need. It may take a little bit of digging, but the knowledge you gain will be well worth it.

BAD MOTHERBOARD ECS MCP61P-AM Motherboard


You can. Just make sure it's compatible with the same processor, RAM etc...or it may cost you more in the long run.
You can bring that spec into the local computer store, ask them to just either replace or upgrade...make sure you tell them you'd like to use the same processor, RAM etc.
I hope that helps.

Can i up grade my processer on my dell dimension 5150 desktop computer and if so how big of a processer can i upgrade and is it easy to install.


Good morning! Yes, you can upgrade the processor of your computer but it will depend on the compatibility & support criteria of your computer motherboard, I suggest to check/review the product/operations manual of your computer motherboard which will inform us the details of specification requirements of processor that your computer motherboard will support & compatible with. Installation of processor is easy but with caution just follow the steps procedures written on its enclosed product manual, then make sure to install it with a good CPU FAN that will control its heat temperature. best regards.

Should I get a new cpu for dell dimension 3000?


HII MARLBOROMANZ ,
YEAH THE PROCESSOR IS BIT SLOW FOR GAMES TO RUN PROPERLY.

I WOULD SUGGEST U TO BUY MOTHERBOARD THATS INTEL 965G AND CORE2DUO PROCESSOR.

U DONT NEED TO UPFRADE THE RAM AND VIDEO CARD U CAN USE THEM IN NEWLY UPGRADED MOTHERBOAD AND PROCESSOR.

I AM SURE U WILL ENJOY GAMES IF U UPGRADE ONLY OTHERBOARD AND PROCESSOR.REST ALL IS FINE.
