Memory and CPU for my old Dimension 2400

By justinc1431 ·
I've been using this Dell Dimension 2400 for ages now, been pretty reliable. But it's time to do some upgrading. I need a CPU and 2gig of ram(max cap). Was wondering if the following would work or not?



If you have other reccomendations please let me know. Also curious if I'll need a new heatsink and fan? If so could someone reccomend one that's not going to cost me an arm and a leg. Thanks all.

Well the processor might be alright, but the RAM is too fast ..

I've got a funny feeling (if the DELL still has its original motherboard) that you can only install PC2700 RAM.

I reckon your choice of PC3200 RAM is too fast for your motherboard, irrespective of the CPU.

I have upgraded the ram before, but it's been a few years now. I thought I had to stick to PC2700 but wasn't sure. Thanks for the info. Hopefully I can get some more info on the CPU, this Celeron is sloooow.
