|I have an old Dell Dimension 8200 that I am planning to give to my son. It has:|
Original Dell i850 motherboard
P4 2.0 GHz Northwood - 400MHz FSB
1 GB PC800-45 RDRAM
I am wanting to upgrade the CPU to the 3.06 Northwood, but this is a 533MHz FSB chip and it currently has a 400MHz FSB chip. Dell's site, as well as people here, say the mobo is compatible with both 400MHz and 533MHz FSB processors. My question is, do I have to replace the RDRAM? The PC800-45 is 400MHz...any help would be appreciated. And Cobra, if you read this, your input would be GREATLY appreciated.
