Hi,

I have a Dell 8200 with a 1.7GHz, 400MHz FSB CPU.

Before you buy a Pentium 4 processor you better make sure you know what socket your motherboard is becuase all Pentium 4 processors are not interchangeable. You might have an early one called a socket 423 which is not compatible with P4s after a certain date which are socket 478. So research this very carefully before you send money somewhere ok? S!

I heard that Http://airwarfare.com had a used parts area.

As I said in your other post in Community Help.... make sure your Dell mobo can handle an upgrade. If it can, how high can you go. As a word of caution, Ddsflyer's 3.4 might be too big of a jump.

Maybe Steve_v can tell you. I know nothing about Dell PCs except that they, like all the other brand names out there, are proprietary. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

If you can get a 478 socket, don't get 2.8, get 3.2. Price difference is marginal but speed increase is... well marginal too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

check your mother board and find out what it supports. you may be able do dump the celeron and put a PIV on it. if it only supports 400 fsb then your stuck with a celeron. you might try looking over at e-bay.

try cpu z. the down load is at the bottom. it shoudl tell you what your main board is as well as a few other neat features. the down load is at the bottom try the 1.27

Good point about the bios. If you can get the bios revisions and update list it is the final word on what the motherboard will support. S!

Good luck womenfly, as an owner of a Dell Dimension 8250 I know how hard it can be to upgrade the CPU - Dell is very (very) particular, eh mate? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Did you try all the usually web sites? Or are you hoping to get a real deal from someone?

Dell said I have an 850 Motherboard and will only support 400MGz FSB. The specifications for my computer says a 2.8GHz CPU as the highest. But does this mean a 3.4GHz, 400MHz FSB CPU will not work? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

you need to go to the dell website and enter your model number. look for BIOS updates and read thorugh the latest towards the earliest and find the fastest CPU the BIOS will support. CPU's do not "RUN" at FSB speed, the run at multiples of those speeds and your BIOS is the limiting factor for those multipliers - that said Intel makes only ONE speed for any given chip - if they Make a 3.2 and it fails standards testing they try it at 3.0, if it fails at 3.0 they try it at 2.8, if it passes at 2.8 they sell it as a 2.8 - my point here is that if it's the same model (remember that not only speed varies but voltage so again you BIOS is the limiting factor) it should work "UNDERCLOCKED"... if you have a 3.2 CPU of the same model in a 2.8 maximum BIOS it should be able to run at 2.8

In addition you will also need a new heatsink/fan for the additional heat output and you might also want to see if your current power supply can handle the increased power consumption. Dell like all prebuilt computer makers tend to put the minimum required anything in a system to save costs.

It is my understanding that you, like me, are limited to a maximal CPU of 2.8 gHz. I managed to find a 2.8 at tigerdirect.com, but you will probably discover that the 2.8 400 FSB CPU is practically a skunkworks CPU. . . Intel denies that it even exists, but there is ONE PDF doc out there that lists it. From what I heard a few OEM HP and Compaq computers had the 2.8 400FSB CPUs made for them and some companies picked up surplus CPUs, and others were selling used ones. Mine looked like a new one, but I can't be certain. The Official max CPU you will probably find in the 400 FSB range is the 2.6. Check at www.newegg.com (http://www.newegg.com) for some of the best prices and service. Tigerdirect is not a place I'd buy from unless they had something nobody else did (like a 2.8 400FSB PIV!)

I do have a 2.2 PIV from a Dell 8200 that I'd consider selling if your interested, but you can probably find a good price on a 2.6 and *maybe* a 2.8

Best of luck
