Dell dimension 2400

I bought a dell and I am really happy with it, I paid under 450$ and it came loaded with a monitor cant about that. But now comes the fun dumping high performance parts into it. I talked with support and they dont know right from wrong I asked them what my motherboard was and they told me something other than what my motherboard is like my graphics card. so to overclock I need to know what im dealing with right I know its a intel but when I try to find whats - what I get Intel (R)82845g/gl/ge/pe/gv processor to I/o controller - 2560 and intel 82801DB lpc interface controler if anyone can help on that it would be really great....... Im really scared from the whole support deal the juy really didnt speak a good english and It makes it really hard when you cant under stand the garbage that is flowing out his mouth and you have to ask 6 or 7 times for him to repeat himself and then he gets mad because I cant understand him it was so sooooooooo scary it wasnt funny and the juy was not right in the first place please someone. Its probably the cheapest motherboard intel makes. it has a p 4 2.4 and I think a 500 front side buss ??????

okay -

Cons

1. You bought a dell
2. Dell sucks for OCing
3. you probably wont be able to find a hacked bios for it
4. it could break while trying to flash

Pros

1. Overclocking and breaking things is fun
2. 450 dollars

Search google for a hacked bios on dell comps. Compare serial numbers.

Dell tech support: that's what happens when people outsource everything to India. Bastards.

dell 2400's have a crappy IGP and no AGP slot and the ram that the use in them is s***. but, then again, if you dont screw w/ it it doesnt break. i have a 2400, and its my main rig, because it never crashes. i havent oced it yet cause i havent found a hacked bios for it. its almost not even worth the risk to try on one. but then again, it sure would be fun to screw with a dell like that

I had a dell for a few mos. They are good computers in terms of reliability. Eventually I sold it for the need to have a faster and much more upgradeable computer. I would be a little wary about OC a dell though, and not sure it is even worth it. Wouldn't get too much of a performance increase out of it even if you could. But if you OC just for the helluvit, then by all means, OC that baby!

I agree Dell suxxors. Same with Gateway. It is better to customize your rig.

I'm running one Dell at the moment and trying to find a PSU or adaptor for the other working one that I have. I do have some custom built systems too.

No dude, seriously. It was actually my family that bought it, a few years back. It was a Dell Dimension L886r. And it was like 1800 bucks or something. And it only have a P3 733 and 128 MB Ram, a monitor, a keyboard and Harman/Kardan Speakers, THATS IT!

Dimension L866r, this has to be the worst computer I have ever encountered. The only semi-cool thing was it came with a Sound Blaster Live! (which I stole from it), a CD-RW Recorder (which I stole from it) a17 inch monitor (which I stole from it) and Harman/Kardan Speakers (which I stole from it). Yeah, it was like 1800 bucks.
