Hi,

I would like to know whats the maximum processor and maximum ram i can upgrade this to.

Ideally I would like at least an i7 with 16gb ram. I know that Dell specifiy a maximum of 8gb but i believe with a new processor more could be supported.

 

Can someone advise?

 

Kind regards,

Barry

You need to ask dell what processors are supported by THEIR BIOS. Then, you can select from those, only if your current processor is not soldered to the motherboard (which it may be):

The motherboard will dictate what your maximum ram is.

 

For a system this old, in my opinion, it makes little sense to spend time and money trying to upgrade it. I, personally, would spend my money on a new(er) system.

 

And, remember - Windows 7 dies in January 2020.
