Okay guys, I would like to bring my Gateway P7811FX online for crunching. The problem is, the current processor (P8400) really isn't up to the task.
After doing some research I have found that the best processor upgrade for this system is the Intel X9100 Core 2 Extreme. It will allow for crunching 4 threads. Not to mention being about the best and last processor for this aging system.
Now here is the issue with all of this:
Most of the sites that actually do still sell these are asking about $250 to $300
These can be had from fleabay for around $150, which is about the most I would want to spend on this system.
Several years ago I won a legal battle with fleabay so naturally they will not allow me to have an account
I guess what I am asking here; does anyone have one of these or know where I can pick one of these up from...Other than of course fleabay.
I will not be able to afford this until the 19th of this month; about a week from now.
