I purchased a Dell Dimension a while back. It ran wonderful and I very much enjoyed using it. I play lots of 2D games on it, but once I made the jump into 3D, it showed it's true colors.
Most basic 3D ran just fine, but once I purchased The Sims 2, it simply just couldn't get much slower. I thought, "Hey, all I need is a new graphics card, right? I have a Intel Celeron D Processor 2. All I wanted to do was upgrade the graphics.
I'd even sell the bastard if I had to to just build one from scratch, but I wouldn't know how to go about it. When I bought the thing, I didn't know much on the hardware aspects of repairing computers. Obviously now I know at least a little better. I'd really like to upgrade my graphics no matter what, but I'm not about to fork out money for another computer when I still have this peice of junk. Dell PCs have custom cases and motherboards, not standard ATX components, so if you want a motherboard that fits that case that doesn't have the graphics chip built into it, Dell should be able to provide you with one.
But that graphics card might not solve your gaming problem on its own, because the Celeron is an economy processor mainly used for office uses and Internet access. The Celeron D has a dual-core, which means two processors housed in a single unit, but there aren't any games that can use both cores out yet. Ask Dell which Intel Pentium 4 processors the new board can run and buy one as well.
Ask Dell if you can buy it from a third-party supplier, because Dell charges more for components than most third-party vendors. Thanks for clearing up my erroneous assumption that because a Pentium D processor is dual-core, a Celeron D is also dual-core. Intel really knows how to confuse things. I have the correct info on my site about it, but forgot about it. Celeron D - http: Thanks for clearing that up for me. Though, just before my card came in, I realized it wasn't the same thing when I started looking up pictures of motherboards with a PCI express port.
But I decided to keep the graphics card since I felt it was a pretty solid investment, all I needed to do was get a new motherboard now. However, I'm still pretty new on the technical side of things as to what motherboards would fit inside my Dell.
I don't want to go out and buy one and attempt to install it and get to the point where I realize it just doesn't fit and have to send it back! So, could anyone make some suggestions on maybe what motherboards would at least fit inside it? I really don't want to have to buy another case if there's a motherboard out there that might actually fit inside my Dell with a PCI-E port.
I need at least 1 regular PCI port for my modem card, and I think my sound is integrated on this motherboard. I do have an older dell with a larger case but it's not the prettiest and I don't know if it would even work. Cases from what I've seen are pretty expensive, not to mention I don't even know what motherboard to buy as it is to even think of getting a new case.
If there's no motherboard out there like this, how could I go about selling this computer online? Is there any way to tell what type of processer I've actually got? Honestly, an x hm, isn't that great, but of course it's better than integrated. I don't think there are any boards that will work with the specs you desire. There are several other choices to consider though.
One choice is you could return the x and get an agp card, and motherboard, like this. Second option, since you apparantly want to keep your x, you could get a board that will fit your pc and use pci-e, but it will require you to use a new cpu, either an intel socket T , or an amd socket socket matx boards are very hard impossible?
A celeron d isn't very good for games, so an upgrade might be nice. Amd cpus are very good for gaming in my experience. If you want an Amd cpu: Here's an amd board you could use. Here's an intel board you could use. These would all work with the Case I've already got? I'm really not looking to spend a lot of money unfortunately. I wonder if I sold my current motherboard and processor if I could get close to enough money to pay for an AMD and a motherboard.
Too bad I'd not know where and how much to sell it for. Maybe I could trade it in for something? Of course AGP is easier to find a card for.
Either way though I'd have to replace my motherboard, so I might as well just keep the one I've got and get a board that supports it. This card and case will have to do for a while. I guess buying a processor to go with the new motherboard would be the only way out of this, so my only option is to sell the ones I've got in order to pay for it. I just wouldn't know how to go about it or even how much to sell em for.
Would this be possible to do? If you're really on a tight budget you could get something like this. Amd socket motherboard with pci-express, matx. The palermo semprons supposedly can overclock very well, if you're into that. You must log in or sign up to reply here.
