Hello; As per list of supported processors for the D915GEV, the fastest processor that you can install is the Intel Pentium 4 660, you can check the complete list of supported processors here: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d915gev/sb/CS-026957.htm Now, if you are planning to buy that processor make sure that your BIOS version is 0401 or greater
Now, in regards the support memory the max amount of supported memory is 4gb, you can check the list of memory requirements here: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d915gev/sb/CS-027062.htm This desktop board unfortunately does not support Intel(R) core 2 duo processors, since your desktop board chipset does not support them. Finally, with the current wattage of your power supply there is no need to add more power on the system, however if you are planning to add a powerful video card is recommend to add a higher power supply
Yes, I had seen the processor compatibility links, but I was wondering if it just didn't have more recent processors and memories due to the lack of update in the link after the board was discontinued... I had hopes that the 775 pin socket standard could still make it compatible with newer processors, but your answer about the chipset clarifies my question.
It seems that I need to upgrade almost everything but the case, or buy a complete new desktop...
Also, thanks for the additional information about the power supply.
