Resurecting an old tower
This information was taken off the processor I have from an older tower. It's a "Pentium 4 2.4Ghz / 512 / 533 / 1.525 Volt" That is all the info I have on the CPU. Since I know squat about Intel processors (I'm an AMD guy). What is the fastest possible processor I can get with this chipset?
I want something dual-core if at all possible with this chipset, if not the best single core will do. I'm not looking for Speedy Gonzales, just something that works nicely . The MoBo is fine, I just want to resurrect a relic which still works.
I haven't the foggiest about Intel processors. It also has a 1GB of RIMM RAM (4 sticks of 256MB). I plan on updating my PSU as well, and maybe my video card to a circa 2005 of some sort. Lastly would Windows Vista or 7 work with that? Or would I be stuck with XP?
Any help on the best possible processor I can get with this chipset would be appreciated. Thanks!
