Dell Dimension 9200 can I upgrade to Intel Core 2 Duo E6850

  • currently I have a Dual 2 Core 2.66 installed - this has a 965 chipset
     
    Thanks
  • No, the FSB is different. Do some research and you'll find out about this.

  • that I understand - any reason why the new PROC cannot run @ FSB of 1066 vs 1333
  • It's all about the Dell motherboard. From what I've gathered only Dell can allow any modding to the mobo. I think through a bios flash or something. Anyway, this is a good topic, and I'm sure you can find some expert opinions on this matter through Dell  and Goggle search. BTW type in fsb1333 in the search box to the left. Good luck.

  • check the internet some say the performance disparity is not large enough to warrant an upgrade anyway.
