Dell GX620 mini tower CPU upgrade

What would be the best CPU I could get for this baby? I have the stock motherboard and I'm fairly sure it doesn't take core 2 duo but it takes Pentium D. Which processor would you recommend? Would I need a new psu to support it? I have the standard 305W psu that came with the machine.

    Depending on what you have right now it might not be worth it. If you have the Pentium 4 HT 630 or better you will not see any real performance boost by going to the Pentium D if you are running the Celeron in there then the Pentium D would be a nice upgrade. The max it will support is a Pentium D 840 it will not work with anything better then that.

    I dont know if this would work but if you could find a GX 750 755 or 760 motherboard they support core 2 processors and you would be able to keep your OEM version of windows this way but I am not sure if it is the same size as yours.
  2. I figured as much :( I'll just buy some more RAM and save up for a new pc. Thanks for the reply. How do I close a thread?
  3. Even though it is not listed, it will run the 9xx series Pentium D's also.

    I put a 950 in my sons with the latest bios and all works fine.

    Even with a 950 its really not worth it the gain you will see is not enough to justify especially if they have the fasted Pentium 4 HT
