I would like to upgrade my processor. The spec on it is:
The 423-pin socketed microprocessor, shown in the previous illustration with the heat sink attached, includes the following features:
• Intel® Pentium® 4 microprocessor with integrated 8-KB first-level cache
• Secondary (L2) cache with integrated 256-KB at full processor speed
• Associated circuitry
The socketed microprocessor inserts into the ZIF connector mounted on the system board. A clip secures the heat sink to the connector.
The computer is a Dell 8100. Right now it has a P4 1.33GHZ processor.
According to the documentation, the board supports:
Intel® Pentium® 4 microprocessor that runs at either 1.30, 1.40, 1.50, 1.70, 1.80, or 2.0 GHz
Would my board support:
Does a CPU upgrade make sense? I have started capturing video which is really bogging down my PC. Any comment on the XEON vs. the other processor that I linked?
