Upgrading my 5 yo Dell Precision 490! (TO the MAX)
Well, thanks to ebay I can now take My workstation to its potential MAX.. for just £58! This is a little sad but I love the idea of maxing out a PC. if it was only 2008 :)
I've upgraded from a single socket Xeon Dual core running at 1.86Ghz to a pair of Xeon Dual Cores running at 3Ghz! I already have 16GB of ECC DDR2.
Before: Attachment 21311
After: Attachment 21312
The upgrade kit: Attachment 21313
Before install: Attachment 21314
Obvious CPU speed boost after but also the memory performance has gone up.. All I need now is a SSD!
I had to get a cheque made out to the guy, as ebay PP won't accept the schools company CC:(
