I have Dell Precision 380. I dont know what motherboard is installed in it. but through a software i have been able to know that it has intel i955x chipset. I want to know how far i upgrade my computer to?
or Can I upgrade it to Core 2Duo?
Plz tell me. I will be very glad.
No. The 955 chipset is too old to support any core2 duos. And the motherboard is a btx format with btx case, so finding a newer board that fits is also difficult, but there are a few out there if you want to try changing it out. Only btx boards will fit, and your original dell operating system probably won't reactivate with a different motherboard. You'll need a new windows coa, unless you bought a new generic copy of windows. Microsoft will sometimes give you a new coa if your new board is made by dell. But I would keep your system as a spare or sell it on ebay, and start over.
Obviously I will try for the maximum i.e "Pentium D". I knew about it, But i wanted to make sure of it. If I had to change the board, I will opt for Core 2Duo. So what motherboard can support upto that levlel, I have no ideal. Could you guide me? I will really appreciate that.
