Some help for upgrading an old rig

Last response: in CPUs

I currently have an old Dell Dimension 4700 and I have been upgrading it here and there so I can use it to play more modern games. However the Pentium 4 HT 2.8ghz CPU is really holding back performance.

Does the 4700 motherboard have a LGA 775 cpu socket and if so could I upgrade the cpu to a Core 2 duo?

Chances are no. Even if it is socket 775 the chances are still not good. 99.9 percent sure it can not.

You can download CPU-Z to check the exact specifications of your CPU and mobo. That will tell you what you need to know.

alright so It does indeed have a LGA 775 socket, so with that in mind is there any way to ensure that a Core 2 duo could work?
