  • Dell 0GC375 upgrade and CPU

    I am currently running (and want to upgrade the mobo and cpu):

    System model - Dell Inc. Dell DXG051

    Processor - 3.20 gigahertz Intel Pentium D, 16 kilobyte primary memory cache, 1024 kilobyte secondary memory cache

    Main Circuit Board - Board: Dell Inc. 0GC375, Bus Clock: 800 megahertz, BIOS: Dell Inc. A03 12/13/2005

    Memory Module - 2046 Megabytes Installed Memory
    Slot 'DIMM_1' has 1024 MB
    Slot 'DIMM_3' is Empty
    Slot 'DIMM_2' has 1024 MB
    Slot 'DIMM_4' is Empty

    Video Card - NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+

    Bus Adapter - NVIDIA nForce4 Serial ATA RAID Controller (2x)
    Standard Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller
    Standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller

    I upgraded to the nVidia GeForce 9800 GTX+ and have been having nv4_disp errors, which I attempted to repair by removing the nVidia driver and application software, followed by latest driver downloads and reinstallation of the 9800 GTX+ card in the 2nd pcie slot along with the newest driver download for nVidia.

    As i was changing the slots on the video card I noticed a section on the mobo in which the capacitors looked to be bulging from the top.

    Also the mobo is going to end up being the bottleneck in the system in my attempt to increase fps and max graphics.

    I appreciate your suggestions.

    try driver cleaner... run it in safe mode and wipe all the nvidia video drivers, then reboot and cancel the installing new hardware popup... then install the newest nvidia drivers, also... is your motherboard PCI-Express 2.0? i dont think it is, will that still work?

      2.0 is backwards compatible with 1.1

        I have used drive sweeper, I have also wiped all files related to the graphic card in safe mode and normal mode. Then to be safe in safe mode and normal mode i ran a search to make sure that I only had one set of files for the graphics card and nVidia mobo.

        I am thinking that it may have something to do with the power thru the domed capacitors in that one section of the mobo and at this point am ready to upgrade the mobo and cpu. Any suggestions about the best gaming bundle for mobo/cpu that will be compatible with my system?
