I have finally decided to upgrade the processor in my parents machine. It is a Dell Dimension 2350. I am also going to upgrade the Ram to 1gb from 512mb. They currenly have a P4 1.8g 400fsb processor. I believe I can go up to a 2.8
My question is...How do I know what processor will work with the motherboard?
Here is a link to the motherboard.
I'm just kind of confused if just any P4 single core processor works, or what?
Also, if the FSB is higher than 400, is it backwards compatible?
Finally, will upgrading to say a 2.8 and increasing the RAM to 1gb be worth it? I'm planning on buying used parts, found some pretty good deals on Ebay for processors.
