How Do Upgrade the CPU on a Dell Optiplex GX240 Tower
I have a Dell Optiplex GX240 tower computer w/ a 1.70 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4. I would like to install a faster CPU on to the same motherboard. I'm not really a hardware guy.Over the years I've upgraded memory chips and installed plenty of HDDs and interface cards on multiple PCs, but have never replaced either a CPU or motherboard.
I would like to know the following:
1) What is the fastest CPU I could install on this motherboard
2) How complicated is this procedure
3) Helpful web links that would walk me through the procedure (ideally in video)
4) Good source for buying CPUs online
2 GHz seems to be the fastest.
