Hello, I have a Dell E310 w/ Intel 521 2.80

Can it be upgraded to a Intel 672 3.80 the only difference I can see is the number of:

Bus/Core Ratio 14 vs 19

  1. it will work... all those cpu's are very alike
  2. The Intel 915GV has a TDP of 115 watts, whereas the Intel 521 2.80 has a TDP of 84 watts.

    Take this into consideration when you are doing any further upgrades. Dell rates their PSUs for continuous power, and this is good.

    You should see a nice jump in performance especially if you have the full 2 GBs of 533-MHz DDR2 memory.

  3. From what I can find your motherboard will support up to the Pentium 4 640. So the 672 is out. A 2.8Ghz to 3.2Ghz Pentium 4 will NOT be an upgrade you would notice. For less than $200 you can get a CPU, Motherboard and RAM that will run circles around any Pentium 4.

    As for the 2gb ram upgrade:

    Dell Specifications States Max Ram 2GB, with this exception....... :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Each slot can have a Max of 2gb for a total of 4gb... :bounce: :bounce:

    I run Corsair's XMS2 4gb 2x2gb DDR2 TWIN2X4096-6400C5C G

    Also I run wth /PAE Physical Address Extention enabled [36bit addressing ] add to BOOT.INI

    In System Properties:
    Also I run with Performance Option's:
    Visual Effect's: Let windows choose what's best for my computer.
    Processor Scheduling: Background Services.

    Virtual Memory: System Managed Size.

    Under Windows Services: All Services are Enabled as Automatic and Started
    Windows Determines if a Service is Required or not, if not required it stop's it.
