I need to upgrade my Pentium D processor so I can game on my XPS 400. I have 4GB of RAM and Windows 7 ultimate... just need the extra push to get this thing ready for iRacing, which honestly doesn't need much to get going.

More about : xps 400 pentium

if it was me, i'd save up and get an entirely new rig.
Pentium D is hot, and i mean hot, how is your temp?

getting a new one, even low end ones will be a lot faster than what you have.

but for your upgrade, it depends on your board, go check what are the supported cpu's, and note the bios version that is needed. You will probably have to flash, good luck

The XPS 400 supports Pentium 4 or Pentium D processors only and does not support either the Core2Duo or Quad core processors.

After you upgrade to the latest BIOS version, you should be able to upgrade to a Pentium D 960 3.6GHz
