Can I upgrade my Dimension 8250 that has a P4 2.53 ghz Tags: CPUs Socket Dimension Last response: June 11, 2011 7:45 PM in CPUs Share Bonnie4 June 11, 2011 7:25:19 PM Hi - from what I can tell and read, the computer has a PGA 478 socket. Can I update it to a Quad Core Q9000 - I believe it uses the same socket.

If you are looking at something else im not seeing though, let me know. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
