          What does the Dell website say about it? As it's an OEM board, it's down to them as to what upgrades are possible.

              Then that's the official line. If you're worried your PC is running slower than it was when new, that's normal over time and a fresh install of your O/S and software on a freshly formatted hard disk will get that same performance (and reliability) back again. You already have a fast clock speed for that type of Pentium D CPU and even the very fastest *of that type* of CPU wasn't much faster in real world use.

               

              OEMs often provide a factory restore DVD or hidden restore partition with their PCs so if this option is available to you, that will be a quicker method of going about things to get some lost speed back. You'll need to back up all your valuable data if you use a full (format the drive) restore (the method I'd normally suggest).
