Processor upgrade advice
Hi, i have a dell xps 430 with a Q8300 cpu
I want to upgrade to a better cpu but i don't wish to change the motherboard etc.
budget is roughly £100
whats the best cpu to upgrade to that will definitely fit my motherboard?
i don't do a lot of gaming on my pc, but its starting to lag a bit now and getting on my nerves.
i have 8gb of ram which i think is the maximum i can have.
piriform speccy says my motherboard is;
Manufacturer Dell Inc.
Model 0G254H (CPU)
Chipset Vendor Intel
Chipset Model X48
Chipset Revision 00
Southbridge Vendor Intel
Southbridge Model 82801IR (ICH9R)
Southbridge Revision 02
thanks for help.
