  2. that means this gx280 doesn't support any processor dual core.. just the normal one... :( anyway... thanks
  3. I think that a new old mobo could be more expensive since those optiplex are out of the market.
  4. Go to and you can likely find a newer model Optiplex motherboard that you could install a dual core processor in to. As it currently stands, the GX280 simply can't support dual core CPUs (+1 to saint19).
