Me: "Ok, whether recomended or not, Can the GX620 motherboard run with a Pentium D 930 CPU? I believe I have seen them advertised with that chip as an option."
Dell: "_____, as I see from the records that the system you are using can run with a Pentium D 930 processor."
Since I am interested in the VT technology of the Intel chip I was only interested in those ending in "0" since the 800 series and the 900 (ending in 5) don't. http://www.intel.com/support/processors/sb/CS-022102.htm.

I had a GX620 Mini desktop which currently have P4 3.4GHz HT, and thinking of upgrading it to Duo Core D945 (no VT Tech), but based on what you said with your OptiPlex 620, I guess I might go for D960 3.6GHz with VT Tech ...One more question ... Which version of motherboard do you have in that box?Thank you very much for your time.Oh, BTW, any good PCI-X graphic card with 512MB I can use with my Optiplex GX620MT that makes less moise and I dont have to change Power supply?

From the Intel site: the chipset 945G supports the VT technologyif the southbridge is the ICH7-DH (82801GDH) I/O controller hub(aka southbridge), but the GX620 uses the ICH7 (82801GB). http://www.intel.com/products/viiv/index.htm :smileysad:Message Edited by EMT64 on 02-09-2007 07:24 AM
