I'm Going to Replace my mothers 7 year old Single Core CPU which is a Celeron R 2.4 GHz Problem is its so Dusty so it runs at 100% while playing her Farm ville and it lags up a bit.

So I want to buy her http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... a unlock CPU then push it up to 2.9Ghz to give her pc a bit of life Then give her my old GTX 220 if it would Fit inside the case.


I'm not 100% sure if she has a LGA 1155 or LGA 775 a new heatsink-cpu would do the trick Since I help my old friend out with his walmart pc before But he had a AMD so I new what to buy.

our do I need a Celeron?

If it's 7 years old, there's no way it's LGA 1155.

7 years old? Start over. Your mother's pc couldn't possibly have an 1155 cpu. I suggest you check craigslist for a used pc. On my local craigslist, there's a dell vostro complete system with LCD monitor and e6300 core2 duo cpu for only $50. Look for a similar deal and don't dream of overclocking a cpu for your mom. Stability is more important for her than overclocking; build your own if you want to game.

Cool, and see if you can find out what model the motherboard is, as well.

And I completely agree with o1die, actually. Never mind the fact that you can't OC the CPU that you chose.

Not sure what the model is but its a 530 and ya I can check Craigs list but I don't feel like cleaning a computer that is felled with Spam and spyware again from that type of purchase lol

Could be a celeron 450; the e6600 might work if the board chipset is g31; use cpuz to identify the motherboard chipset, ram, etc. The motherboard chipset will determine what cpu might work; you won't get any help from dell. To upgrade the video card, you may need to change the power supply; the 6670 or 5450 chipset (video card) might work without a power supply change if it's 300 watts or more. You can still shop for a used cpu on craigslist if you live in the usa. I found some true bargains recently. http://austin.craigslist.org/sys/3093281541.html
