Hi, im currently trying to find out how i would be able to upgrade my cpu to the fastest it can take in my optiplex gx 240 I know its a rather old computer but i wanted to see how i would if i wanted to. Ive gone to dell but they were pretty much non informative. I currently have this on my computer. its chipset is intel i845, its fsb runs at 400 MHz it uses socket 478 my cpu that i currently have is
Type : Intel Pentium 4
Internal Specification : Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 1.50GHz
Codename : Willamette
Revision : D0
Technology : 0.18µ
CPU ID : F.1.2
CPU IDEx : F.1.2
Brand ID : 8
Microcode : MU0F122E
when i went to the bottom of pc wizard clicking on processor i saw that the mainboard upgradeability had a supported speed of 3000MHz (or more) and its supported voltage was 1.7v i dont know if it has anything to do with it. I hope someone can help me figure out what it can be upgraded too
