Dell says;
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2400/e...

Intel Pentium 4 that runs at 2.2 or 2.4 GHz internally and 400
MHz externally,
or 2.266, 2.4, 2.53, 2.66, 2.8, or 3.06 GHz internally and 533
MHz externally.
Intel Celeron that runs at 2.0, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, or 2.7
GHz internally and 400 MHz externally.

I'm not too sure this would be an economic upgrade though.

Thanks - it appears that moving to PC2700 RAM and upgrading to a real
video card and then upgrading to a 2.8ghz P4 would be the only viable
option, if we upgrade them.

Thanks for the link, it's greatly appreciated.

By that time you could pay for a 4700. Remember, the only video card you
can install is an older PCI card (not a PCIe or AGP). No dedicated video
card slot in a 2400.

Yea, I just spec'd a 2.8ghz P4 and a 512MB/DDR333 for the upgrade, about
$250 and I would still be stuck with no real AGP video card. I'm passing
the info on to the customer, only alternative is to get a new case, PSU,
motherboard, and CPU and then use there rest of the parts....

Or, if you could get a Dell 4000-series motherboard inexpensively, install it in
place of the 2400 board. IIRC, Dimension boards up thru the 4600 share the
chassis and power supply with the 2400. Check the specs on various Dimensions
on the Dell web site before buying. The 4000 series all have AGP slots... Ben

If I was going to change the MB I would get an ASUS or Intel
motherboard, faster CPU (800fsb) and do a lot more. The cost of a Dell
motherboard to just use the same CPU and slow memory is just not worth
it.

In fact, if you go as far as the Motherboard, CPU, Video and RAM, you
might as well just go with a new case/psu so that you don't have to deal
with the Dell case issues.

I was trying to keep the Dell MB so that I don't have to purchase
another OEM copy of XP Pro - as it's clear that changing the motherboard
for non-warranty/repair reasons invalidates the OEM license for XP
already installed on the machine.

Well, the issue with the Dimension 2400 chassis is that it is wired up to use
Dell boards. Any attempt at installing a non-Dell board like an Asus or Intel
generic board requires quite a bit of modification:

1. The external fan on the back of the case uses a non-standard connector.
2. The USB cable to the front panel has a non-standard connector.
3. The other wire leads to the front panel also have a non-standard connector.

So one would end up spending more time jury-rigging the wiring than the
conversion to a Dell board would be worth. Not recommended except for serious
masochists. Better to install a Dell board with better specs than the 2400.

3.06/533, 512K cache, socket 478.


The 2400 will not support a Prescott (1M cache), 800 or 1066 MHz FSB,
nor any LGA-775 CPU.

Yes, it appears to support 400/533 FSB processors and PC2700 RAM.
