Dell Dimension XPS motherboard upgrade
A few weeks ago, I was given a Dell computer, 19” monitor & speakers & subwoofer; it’s a Dell Dimension XPS, Service Tag: 8CBMZ21.
I like the case design, so I would like to upgrade this computer. The CPU is 3.00 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4.
Looking to upgrade to the Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Wolfdale 3.16GHz. My question is will the Intel Core 2 run on the Dell Motherboard? The Chipset is the Intel i875PE.
Or do you think I am wasting my time with this computer?
Also, running Windows 7. I have the Windows 7 family pack (3 licenses)
Thanks for your help.
