Have you tried to turn it on and see what happens, also that cpu is abit slow than Q07 cpus.
Depending on what model motherboard you give me it maybe upgradable but you would a good compact heatsink with grease to keep cool on your new future cpu.
A core2quad maybe optional but I would need to look at some information before making that call to upgrade.
^Blast you fargle!! beat me to the post ;_;
@iFargle...so that mean it IS an older processor then? 'Cause I'm looking for confirmation that this is an older giant heat tank CPU or are these totally normal
and I'm over-reacting.
@Mike Techno Thug. I don't know what my mother board is I just know I got a*
*HP Compaq Business Desktop DC7800 (GC758AV). It didn't come with documentation. (am posting on another PC right now and will run a spec program on the Pc I'm talking about tommorow when I have access, if ur still around)
But like I said I don't want a more powerful CPU like a quad, just wondering about the same power only more currently made with a better heat sink if you think that makes sense, 'cause I'm just guessing.
Also, do you think I got ripped off if I paid $250 for this PC? 'Cause looking at this giant thing (with 2 extra fans it's so huge) I'm sort of looking for a reason to ask to return it. Unless you guys think it's not as old as it looks!
