    I have a Dell xps600, probably from 2005 or 6, with a Dell OXH241 mainboard, Intel Pentium D CPU 3.00GHz processor with Chipset : nVidia nForce4 SLI X16 Intel Edition. Also has a NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX video card. Just wondering if I can upgrade processor to be able to play Black Ops a little better. I don't play multiplayer, I just need it to run a little smoother. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Stikki

    You'll probably have to upgrade motherboard to if you want to upgrade your cpu. What kind of cpu are you thinking about upgrading too? If you want to play black ops then I would have to recommend at least a quad core to play it smoothly.

    Your upgrade possibilities on your system are going to be very limited if any at all on such an old system. Even if you chose to upgrade the Motherboard it is going to have to be a Dell Motherboard unless you plan on using a different case, and if you are using the preinstalled OS that came with the Dell you are going to have to purchase a new OS even if using a Dell Motherboard (unless the chipset is identical to the existing motherboard)
