Hello Tom's Hardware Community!
I'm planning on putting a new CPU in an Optiplex 775 to replace the aging Celeron 430.
If anyone here has a Core 2 Quad Q8400S, what kind of performance should I get out of it?
From what I can tell, It has a lower TDP than it's sister CPU, the Q8400. But everything else seems to be the same.
I'm also open to any other suggestions that you might have.
Well, I'm also going to get a video card (SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5570) and I need to keep the PSU intact. (Dell components are non-proprietary.)
So I don't want to overload the current PSU and cause the rest of the system to come to a hault.
EDIT: Well, never mind, I might as well get a standard Q8400s. It costs way less and the higher TDP shouldn't affect the videocard I'm installing.
