want to upgrade the CPU

March 11, 2010 at 15:06:44
Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 1.794 GHz / 1023 MB
Model: DIMENSION 8200
OS: Microsoft Windows XP Professional
CPU/Ram: 1.794 GHz / 1023 MB
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400 (Microsoft Corporation)
Sound Card: Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device.

I have a 400 MHz FSB unit with 1 Gig of 45 ns RAM. Just doubled the RAM but didn't see much increase in speed.

Are there CPU upgrades for this 8200 and how much speed should I see (2x, more)? And, how about cost?

Hello grasshopper---
Thanks for the guidance...it seems that I have the following options based on one of the replies in the thread you sent.
Do you concur or are there others out there. How big a deal is it to swap out the cpu and what speed increase should I see from this upgrade??

"Also, the last "official" 400MHz FSB P4s were the 2.6As. However, upgrade vendors such as PowerLeap did (and perhaps still do) carry 2.8GHz and even 3.0GHz 400MHz FSB P4s."
