What You Should Know about the Optiplex GX260 Desktop

Older-Generation Pentium CPU Is Adequate

This system is based on one of Intel's older Pentium processors, and though the chip's performance will be more than adequate in most cases, generally it won't be on a par with Intel's newer Core 2 or AMD's Phenom CPUs.

Earlier versions won't run 64-bit operating systems. Other drawbacks include the fact that original Pentium 4-based computers used RDRAM, which is harder to come by these days. The CPU line also lacks the advanced power-saving features found in newer processors.

We recommend opting for a newer processor if you're buying a new computer, but there's no compelling reason to upgrade an existing system if it has one of the faster Pentiums on board.
