Any Socket 478 Northwood or Prescott P-4 processor, will work in the B110/1100, with an FSB specification up to 800 MHz.

Re: CPU Upgrade for Dimension B110

Thanks for the help, to my understanding the motherboard only supports PCI graphic cards right?

Re: CPU Upgrade for Dimension B110

So the NVIDIA 8400GS PCI, is the best upgrade that I can get for the GPU?

The P4 3.0 Prescott 3.0GHz 1MB L2 Cache Socket 478 89W Single-Core Processor, shown in your link should be fine.

The maximum memory the B110/1100 supports is, 2gb.  

Note: For maximum performance, the memory should be installed in matching pairs.

For memory that's certified to work in the B110, has a lifetime warranty and free S&H on orders $40.00+, go HERE.

It's a good card, but I'm not certain it's the 'best', check out the PCI card HERE
