Did the GX620's for come with Pentium 4's? If thats the one you have the G850 is not going to fit(LGA 775 vs LGA 1155).

CPU-z can tell you what cpu you have, that can help us help you.

I mistyped, still 620 was P4(And Pentium D) was it not?

Yes the 620 is P4, if it doesn't fit, what will?

Yes, pentium D does work with an 620 optiplex. I have a 2,8 ghz D in mine.

Unfortuantly while the board will fit a Core2 duo cpu, it can not run it. There are not many upgrade paths. None are even worth it now days.

Pentium D950 and D960 should work, but not sure where you would get one. Those are faster, but still far slower then even an early core 2 duo(something your board will fit, but not run.)

And Grumbledook, do you have the same pc as i do? the mid tower? In the case, which processor do you have?

That will not work as it is a Core2 Duo chip. It will fit the board(they are both LGA 775) but will either die or take out the board when you hit the power button(there was a power system change required for the new Core 2's back then they came out).

So i cant upgrade my processor then :/ ?

Only to the 9XX(950 would be best as dell once sold the systems with that cpu) cpus they are still P4 based(Pentium D not Pentium Dual Core)

They are hard to find now days.

Yes, I have the mid tower. I think it's a D 920, but it could also be an 820 or even 915 I suppose. Nukemaster is right, you won't be able to use anything more advanced than a pentium D in this. What is it fitted with now? Pentium D's really aren't that fast so don't spend a lot of money on them.

But Grumbledook said that it worked for him?

No, not the Core 2 architecture, but Pentium D which is basically a dual core Pentium 4. Core 2's are far better.

Whats the full name of the processor?
December 24, 2011 11:57:01 PM

Intel Dual-Core Pentium D 940 3.20 Ghz 800 Mhz this will work?

You second that, should work just fine.

But the problem is to find one cheap :(
