Will a Dell Dimension 8100 with a Intel 850 + RD-Ram currently with a P4 1.3A 533 processor support a P4 2.8 B 533 processor?

Regards

Peter

Is that an i850E or just i850. The 850 has a 400MHz FSB, and the 850E has 533.

Also, the 1.3GHz P4's were 423-pin if I remember correctly, the new P4's are 478.

I have no idea of the support the 850 offers to the 2.8B... consider giving Dell a call and finding out from tech support...

-edit- http://www.intel.com/design/chipsets/850/

a link to help you a bit.. 2 pin configs... 423 and 478..

the 1.3 appears to be 423pins so it seems like a no to your question... sry m8..

I actually have a friend with a similar box, except his has the 1.4A in it... I feel kinda sorry for people with those old P4A/RDRAM boxes.. no real upgrade path, per se... especially now with RDRAM being more or less dead and relatively expensive.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
