    My brother has a Dell 2400 with a 2.8ghz CPU. He wants to upgrade everything, except a new CPU. Does this CPU work if I take it out and put it into a new motherboard? Does anyone know what socket the CPU is in a Dell 2400 motherboard? I dont want to take off his heatsink and look at it, as I wont be able to tell what kind of socket it is.

    He ordered his case tonight, so I need to know what kind of socket it is before he buys a new motherboard. Im hoping a 478 socket, as that is the most commonly used in motherboards now.

    Please help, and thanks for your consideration and well...help. :)

    Even Dell doesnt have the power to make Intel create custom CPUs for their computers alone; they WILL be compatible-as will hard drives and memory. Only PSUs and motherboards are not compatible.

    Why not just sell it as a full system? You should be able to get £200 odd quid for it :)

    Dont see the point in removing one component and making it unusable :confused:

    What budget do you have and what are the main uses for the new machine?

    2400 Spec

    Intel® Pentium® 4 that runs at 2.2 or 2.4 GHz internally and 400 MHz externally, or 2.266, 2.4, 2.53, 2.66, 2.8, or 3.06 GHz internally and 533 MHz externally.

    Intel Celeron® that runs at 2.0, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, or 2.7 GHz internally and 400 MHz externally.

    Intel Pentium 4 at 2.8ghz and I believe 533mhz bus. Selling the whole thing, not a bad idea, but he would need to get more cash out of it then not. He would need to have enough cash for a 2.8ghz cpu, 256mb ram, 80gb hdd, cd-rom, cd-burner, and thats it. If the tower is in great to mint condition, how much is recommended to sell it at? If he sells it, he needs enough money to buy these parts and hopefully leftover.

    Thanx.
