LGA 775 CPU Replacement Help


Norsea

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I've come into a bit of trouble lately. My father suggested that I should upgrade the processor in the "family computer". I went hunting on Amazon, and also Ebay for a replacement. I asked a friend for help finding one, and he suggested the Intel Core2 Duo E8200 (read some reviews on it, seems like a great buy). I found one really cheap, yeah, refurbished. It's not a huge deal. However, I found out that the FSB on the E8200 is 1333MHz, but the Intel board in the computer only supports:

 

• Intel® Core™2 Duo processor in an LGA775 socket with a 1066 or 800 MHz system bus
• Intel® Pentium® D processor in an LGA775 socket with an 800 or 533 MHz system bus

• Intel® Pentium® 4 processor in an LGA775 socket with an 800 or 533 MHz system bus

• Intel® Celeron® D processor in an LGA775 socket with a 533 MHz system bus

 

The Intel board being used is a D945GCL

 

I'm really out of luck on this one. Unless I can get some help from a member in this section. I'm looking for a cheap CPU that's either used or refurbished, for under $50, that's if you can even find one :/ I cannot replace both the board + the CPU because I don't have that type of money right now.

 

I'd really appreciate the help, support, and advice anyone can give me.

 

Thanks :^:

Core 2 Duo E6XXX family CPUs with 4MB cache are possibly your best bet.

The C2D E6000 series CPUs are your best bet.

If your father wants the processor replaced, then he should front the money for it.

What is your current processor?

What is the family computer used for and why does it need to have the processor upgraded?

Is it some software that requires a faster CPU?

 

IMO a SSD might be a better upgrade.

It's over your budget, but it's the cheapest SSD I managed to find and with 128GB capacity.
