Dell Vostro 200 Slim Desktop CPU Upgrade need help

This question is not answered

Hello, I'm a newbie to this but I can make my way out, I just need to know which CPU Processors I could use, I saw some post but it was from 2009 and maybe there is more variety now in 2011.

My Dad got me this PC back in the 2007 and now it's just so outdated.

My specs are:

Intel Celeron 420 @1.6GHZ 512kb L2 Socket 775 (lol Don't laugh)
Dell 0CU409 Motherboard
Bios Version 1.0.16
2x 512MB RAM =1GB RAM (I will upgrade these too, just waiting to see the CPU that I will use)


So yeah as you can see a living hell lol, Please help!

  • Thanks, but another doubt, I was telling my friend about upgrading the ram as well and he said that I need a new motherboard, is that true?

  • rurik_2092

    The Vostro 200s, supports a maximum of 4gb of DDR2 RAM.

  • Bev, all --

    I know this is an old thread that has been cited many times in Dell Forums-- I've even seen it quoted in Tom's Hardware, for example. But here's a pretty simple question: If the FSB of the Vostro 200 cannot operate faster than 800Mhz, and the memory spec of DDR2 cannot operate faster than 800Mhz, why should you bother to put anything faster than Conroe E4700 into a Vostro 200? Won't any faster processor be bottlenecked by everything on the FSB? 

    Put another way: You'd never see the full benefits of an E8500 Wolfdale (or any CPU that operates faster than 800 Mhz FSB) in a Vostro 200.

    Thanks for the feedback--
