So I got a cheap old dell optiplex gx280 sdt. It has an old single core processor in it. Its a celeron series 2.5ghz. I figured I could upgrade the CPU to something a little more modern. I'm finding conflicting results when trying to find my answer. I found the motherboard compatible with the case and it says you can use up to a pentium-D in it. http://www.amazon.co...SDT Motherboard. But when I looked other places people are saying it only supports up to pentium 4 processors with hyperthread. I wanted to use this processor because its fast and cheap and acording to this amazon link above it should be compatible. http://www.amazon.co...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1. If i can't use this CPU is this pentium 4 compatible? http://www.amazon.co..._?ie=UTF8&psc=1. I would love to be able to install the pentium-D in his computer. Its his first computer I'm fixing up for him for christmas. Any help is appreciated.
Best regards- Tim.
