DELL OPTIPLEX GX150 Upgrade to Intel Pentium 4

\015 I own a DELL OPTIPLEX GX150 desktop tower, not the slim one. It has a Intel Pentium III 933MHz with 64MB RAM. I just updated the bios from A06 to A11. I want to upgrade my Intel Pentium III to a Pentium 4 2.0GHz or better 2.50GHz and atleast 1GB RAM. I'm using it for games mostly such as Command & Conquer collection and Command & Conquer 3 I just recently got. I also just recently got this desktop offline for what I'm wanting to use it for, since most people told me I should get a desktop tower becuase they can be upgraded as much as you want. and my IBM ThinkPad T40 isn't really good for playing games on with having a 14" screen.\015

Answers :

Upgrading to a PIII to a PIV usually requires a new motherboard. Especially with that kind of speed you want to go to. The processor uses a different socket set and requires a different motherboard to absorb twice as much heat as you are putting out of the computer right now (the faster the processor, the more heat is released). Power supply should be around 400 watts as well because you will be needing a different cooling system as well.

How do i change the memory bus speed on my dell optiplex 170l? The CPU is an Intel Celeron 2.4GHz. The mother board processor speed is 400MHz and the Bios indicates a memory bus speed of 266MHz and does not seem to have an adjustable option. If the CPU can run at 400MHz then why can't I get the memory bus to run at 400MHz? Origanuly this system was shipped with 2 X 128MB 333MHz DDR CL2.5 Non-ECC DIMM modules and yet the bios indicates memory speed at 266MHz.
