    Ok so my mother needed a new office PC last year asap and since I was at school, she didn't want to bother me about it. Needless to say, she got ripped big time by a local PC shop and paid over $800 for a shitty bargain PC with a budget outdated 865 chipset with integrated graphics and Celeron D 346. Hell the only thing worth more than about $30 at the time of purchase in this thing is the copy of Windows which probably isn't even legit.
    Anyway, rather than go into a bunch of upgrading I wanted to just upgrade the cpu and found my options extremely limited by the chipset.
    So if anyone has one of the supported CPUs FOUND HERE please let me know what we can work out.
    I always have stuff for sale/trade and of course the celeron D 346 would be available to trade.

    LMK what you all think!

    What is she doing that she needs more than a Celeron D?

    I'll look around and see what I have.

    I do need 775, not 478, please disregard that link I provided as there were 865 chipsets that supported s478 and some that were s775, I didn't realize I needed to be that specific when looking it up and accidentally picked a s478 one lol

    ha ha caught you. Will it support Dual core? 805? I might go to frys today. I know they have loads of them at cheap price. If interested and sure u want I can buy it and ship it. Around $45 (not sure OEM or Retail).

    Also Microcenter has lots of OEM. So call them and see.
