Upgrade Motherboard for Dell Demension 8200

by jgastelum2010 / February 18, 2008 1:18 AM PST

I need some help which I am not getting from Dell. My motherboard needs to be replace so I need to find out what type of motherboard does my Dell Dimension 8200 uses. I have done my research online but it seems I am not getting anywhere. I would like to go with a more powerful processor which I like to use an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and have 1 or 2 gig's of memory and I know that a new power supply to go with it and any other hardware as well.

Thanks for your time.

Good question maybe the time I have spent adding upgrades like my hard drive a DVD-Drive. If there is a better option feel free to voice your ideas

Get a new case and power supply and begin the move. A hard disk and DVD drive would take about 10 minutes to move over.

Resonable purchase for cases

You have a good idea I did not think about that. So where is a reasonable place(s) online to purchase a new case and just my current hardware.

tigerdirect and are a few. First decide what you are taking over and what motherboard you bought and then pick a case that fits. Newegg and Tigerdirect offer barebone deals which offer good prices on the basic components if you haven't already purchased.

Not sure what your Dell had but memory, CPU fan etc. may also need to be upgraded.
