Best processor upgrade for Esprimo P2540

Postby FrankJB » Tue Sep 18, 2012 22:45

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..

Frank

Thanks Sabrex - but is that because the 8600 was the optimim processor known to the original author of the list at the time that the list was made - looking around with my admittedly unknowlegeable eye, I am sure that the E9600 is of the same family for the motherboard & chipset - or is there a setting reached by the E8600 that means no faster...

I can try a E8600 - must be better than what I have!

Cheers
Frank

Unless someone who has tried a processor not in the list and says "it works!!!" on here stick with the E8600
