|i got it only a few months ago, and i was curious about updating it the other day. it may have been running with 225watts for a while, but if i want to upgrade the os (itll run windows 7 fine except for aero, which i dont care). i put a 250gb hard drive in, and it has 2gb pc2-6400 ram already. its a nice system, the p4 is just a little archaic, thats all. |
im expecting it to be on load a little more with windows 7, so im worried about the power supply. this cpu requires 84 watts, and the e1400 would be *at least* as fast, but use much less power at the same time (only 65 watts). it is also only 15 bucks more than a pentium d 820 on ebay.
No try! Do. Or do not. There is no try.
