Ok.. I know the box is over 4 years old, but I need to keep it for a little while longer. I have an Intel Pentium D 830 3.0GHZ (LGA775) on board. I was wondering what the best chip I can upgrade to is... There's no info on the Intel DXP051 mobo around anymore. Anyone have any suggestions? Dell staff, your input would be most valuable!
You can use a faster Pentium D, the XPS 400 does not support either Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad processors.Bev.

Would you happen to know about which chips fit the XPS Gen 5 mother board? I currently have the same Pentium D as the original poster. Thanks!
