Upgrading my Esprimo P2540

Postby FrankJB » Sat Sep 08, 2012 19:11

Hello, I hope someomne can advise me.

I have a Esprimo Desktop, model P2540 with a E2220 @ 2.4GHz, memory 4GB and running Windows 7 32 bit
I have also added a (low power consumption) NVIDIA Geoforce 8500GT so I can run a better monitor

I have added 1 x 1TB hard disc to the 250GB installed, and I also run an external 2TB disk with all of my large images.

Although the PC is getting old now, I believe that I can still upgrade the processor to a better one. Various specs seem to state that it was shipped later with up to a 8400 processor - and possibly up to a 9400 type.

As these are slowly becouming cheaper (ebay etc), can I ask what is the fastest processor that I can use to replace the E2220 - without any other significant changes?

The E2220 is OK, but if I can maximise the power of the PC, then I would like to know the options available.

Many thanks in advance to anyone who can help..

Hi Frank,

unfortunately you posted your question into the German language forum. So there is my reply nevertheless:

The Esprimo P2549 was shipped with different mainboards during its lifespan. you will need to check what board ist installed. It may be D2840 or a D30xx or maybe even another one. Some later models were available not only with E8500 but even with quad Core2Duo cpus, including the Q9650.
