wow what a quick responce only one problem i have know idea the dell optiplex gx 280 i found in trash a few years back and the del optiplex gx 260 i bought out of news paper 4 years ago the processor speed in current gx260 is 2.4 gigahtz and in the gx280 is 2.6
but as far as motherboards and othe info i wouldnt know where to look
The specs are so different that i would say no, you wont be able to get an 800MHz FSB Pentium to run well on a board that only supports 533 MHz, it will run significantly slower, i doubt the chipset even supports it.
oh well well maybe ill just try to get gx280 up and running
question 2 i bought an sata card with 2 internal sata ports and an ide port attached as well the gx 280 is sata ready i mean theres no on board ide connector other than the cd rom cable like i said i fished this computer out of the trash so whomever owned before me did something to the bios im geuessing. the sata drive inside at the time i tried reloading and wasnt able too
my question is on the sata card can i make master drive ide or does the master drive have to be sata if need any more info will ry to find thanks
