Dell Optiplex GX 620
My current work desktop is a Dell Optiplex GX620 with a Pentium D 3.0 Ghz and 4GB RAM. Since installing Vista it has become a bit of a dog (I didn't want to install it, but need to start getting to grips with it). Does anyone know if the motherboard will take a Core 2 processor? Some older socket 775 boards won't use the newer Intel chips, but this one does take DDR II RAM, which leads me to think that it can be upgraded.

Re: Dell Optiplex GX 620
I remember looking at this when I was buying a new computer just over a year ago. The chipset the GX620 and most of Dell's other Pentium D based systems weren't conroe compatible at the time.
IIRC it wsa something to do with the voltage being different (or certainly nothing that a BIOS update could fix) so I'm pretty sure that you wont be able to use a Core2Duo on a GX620 unfortuntely :cry:
