  1. ok i have a dell optiplex gx260 here is a description:
    4T274 PRINTED WIRING ASSY, PLANAR (MOTHERBOARD), GX260, 845G, AUDIO/VIDEO, GIGAHERTZ NETWORK INTERFACE CARD/CONTROLLERS, 2
    9K795 PROCESSOR, 80532, 2.0G, 512K, 400FSB, SOCKET N
    3K113 DUAL IN-LINE MEMORY MODULE, 256, 266M, 32X64, 8K, 184

    when i went to upgrade the ram Kensington said i have a 2.53 ghz cpu, can i upgrade processors without changing the motherboard? if so what is the top speed i can reach. forgive the novice in me, i am a damn good mechanic, but computers are a little foreign to me.

    I've been upgrading some GX280's here at work from a Celeron D 2.53Ghz to full P4 3.2Ghz (LG775 socket) with no issues. Have you checked Dell's site to see with the original option/upgrade path was for the box? It'll give you a pretty good clue as to its capabilities.
