Some Dells aren't very upgradeable. I tried to upgrade my friends processor from 2.8ghz to 3.4ghz and I couldn't even remove the processor. Try checking the Dell website for info on how to upgrade your computer. I checked the Dell website for upgrading my friends computer and they said you can't remove the processor.

QUOTE "who cares how long it takes to start, it does wat it needs to do" i know what you mean but our family computer is a 733MHz PIII but its a dual processor PIII (weird i know) and it is slow

what is RDRAM?

if dell uses it is it really that expensive?

RDRAM is older technology RAM made to run at the FSB of the CPU....used to b a huge thing. now we get just as much performacne from DDR.

VERY expensive...
