  • Does the Dell B1100, support Prescott cores?

  • AKM8

    Any Socket 478 Northwood or Prescott P-4 processor, will work in the B110/1100, with an FSB specification up to 800 MHz.

  • So the NVIDIA 8400GS PCI, is the best upgrade that I can get for the GPU?

    The P4 3.0 Prescott 3.0GHz 1MB L2 Cache Socket 478 89W Single-Core Processor, shown in your link should be fine.

    The maximum memory the B110/1100 supports is, 2gb.  

    Note: For maximum performance, the memory should be installed in matching pairs.

    For memory that's certified to work in the B110, has a lifetime warranty and free S&H on orders $40.00+, go HERE.

    It's a good card, but I'm not certain it's the 'best', check out the PCI card HERE

  • Thanks for the replies, I found a 9500GT in PCI. Also there is a NVIDIA 6200 X2 1GB card.

  • AKM8

    You cannot use any PCI Express cards in the B110, only PCI.

  • I understand. But Jaton makes the 9500GT in a PCI flavor.

  • AKM8

    Then that's a good choice, go for it.     Yes
