Hello, I just picked up a HP xw6200 mother board to build a new desktop PC. The board came with dual Intel Xeon 2.80 GHz processors. I'd like to upgrade the processors to one of the faster options available for the board. I found this in the mother board manual.

These are the processors that the board came with.

I think that I've found a couple compatible processors (pictured below), but because this is my first time upgrading a processor I figured that I'd run it by the forum to verify that these will work.

Thanks in advance.

I suspect both are compatible with each other, but they're so old I don't see a purpose in putting them back in service. It's basically a Pentium 4. You can buy used Pentium 4 boxes for $50 or less.


Between the little bit of money that I'll spend on this, the parts I've been given or that I currently have I'll probably spend right around $50. So I'm good with getting this PC put together. And I'm interested to see how a dual processor machine will perform!!!

But since this is my first time upgrading a processor I figured that I'd verify that these will work. With trying to save some $$ I dont want to by 3 sets of processors to finally find a set that's compatible!!!
