Old (ancient?) upgrade


Need help seeing if I can get a Dell Vostro 2200 up and running. Everything but the graphic card and HD are factory made.

Is it worth it or should I junk it?

    Hello, from what I can see the Vostro 220 is quite out of date. Since this is an older system, to install a newer processor that is currently made, you would need to change the motherboard to something that can support the processor. Any motherboard currently made now only supports DDR4 RAM which would need to be purchased. If your computer's product key was stored in the motherboard, you may also need to purchase a new copy of Windows for the computer to work as well. So you'd be basically buying a new / building a new PC at this point.
