Hello,

I own a Dimension L700cx (700 MHz Celeron) that has been quite reliable for many years, but the CPU just isn't able to handle many tasks anymore. So I am considering upgrading the CPU and Motherboard, thinking this would allow me to get a few more years out of the machine without much investment.

I am not clear if the EIDE HDD that is in the box now will work with new Motherboards. Will it connect to a PATA/IDE connector?

I would also appreciate any other thoughts about upgrading the CPU as I am a hardware rookie.

If this upgrade would work, I am considering getting an Athlon II X3 435 or an Athlon II X3 440 as the new CPU. Both are well reviewed and I would be interested in your input.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Dell computers all use proprietary parts. You can't just take a dell comp and add new parts.


You're better off getting a new computer. If you want us to help, fill out form in sticky, see sig for link.

Thanks for the reply. That is good to know about Dell systems and I will post another message with a proposed system spec in the future.

Je kan je CPU nog upgraden tot ongeveer 1GHZ. Sommige werken wel en andere weer niet (ook CPU's met dezelfde specificaties) een CPU meer dan 1 GHZ heb ik niet werkend kunnen krijgen.

De memory is ook niet standaard. Er zit Unbuffered memory in.

Ik heb hier ook een dell L700cx staan en heb hem nog kunnen upgraden naar 1GHZ met 512MB geheugen. Meer zit er niet in voor dit oude beestje.

Memory type: PC 133U-333-542 CL3 256MB

Stop geen Costa Rica CPU's in je systeem..die werken niet
