does anybody know if a pentium 4 in a dimension 8200 can be replaced with a pentium d from a xps 400?

My suggestion would be to look at the specs for the motherboard.

Pentium D needs a 945 chipset I believe. And like is said its a different socket all together.

I don't think the Intel 850 or 850E chipsets, whichever one you have in the 8200 supports Pentium D's. Not only that but the Intel 850 or 850E chipsets don't support a 800mhz fsb AND they are both have different sockets.

Like this poster pointed out... You have a physical limitation and a chipset limitation. Physically that Pentium D has 775 pads and that Pentium 4 has 478 pins... so physically they are not interchangeable.

Some later Pentium 4 models are the same physical socket as a Pentium D and are interchangeable if the chipset and system bus/BIOS will support said upgrade.
