Or I could keep the current CPU. Mostly I just need a graphics card.

Welcome to the forums!

I know that my Optiplex 760 which uses the same chassis and similar board supports pretty high end configs.

I've got a Q9550 but I believe the 380 supports a q9650, 8gb of DDR2-800, you could DIY a vertical mount like I did as a joke and use a new PSU but it supports anything that fits in a 1 tall PCIe slot officially

 

Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Are you sure? No, really. 

List of my systems:

Main PC:

Spoiler

HP z620 workstation, 2x Xeon e5-2690 v0, EVGA GTX 980 SC, 8x4gb DDR3-1333, 2x 2tb HDD, 1tb boot SATA SSD, Windows 10 Pro

Linux system:

Spoiler

ProDesk 600 g1 SFF, i5-4590, Quadro k620, 2x4gb DDR3-1333, 64gb boot SSD, 250gb storage HDD from the ewaste pile with many bad sectors, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

XP system:

Spoiler

Compaq DC7600 SFF, Pentium 4 HT 631, MSI GT 210 passive, 2x512m DDR2-667, 80gb Spinmaster HDD

Testbench:

Spoiler

Optiplex 760 board, GameMax VP-600 PSU, 4x 64gb AliExpress SSD (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 10), 1tb HDD (storage)

(currently has a Core 2 Quad Q9550 and 4x2gb DDR2-800 but I change its config frequently)

So is the q9650 a CPU? I suck at IT, But yeah

Yes that is a CPU.

q9650s are rare and expensive. They go for above $80 sometimes but q9550, which is only 166mhz lower clock per core is about $15.

Clear your CMOS after swapping the CPU (pull the battery for 15 mins) and you'll be good

What will this be used for? Keep in mind core 2 quads nowadays are just office cpu's at best as they are very weak. So no modern gaming can be done on these machines. Gpu wise depends do you have the mid tower or the sff computer?

Maybe first ask what the goal is here? Might not be achievable at all with the system they have.

Would like it to run roblox, Maybe even BeamNG drive, I have 620 in a Laptop. But I would like it to be a Cheap gaming PC basicly

Beam ng is a big stretch but roblox is easy enough. However which version do you have the mid tower or sff computer?

If they go for $80, That would be £60, I'm aiming for £100 for Christmas

Do you think it could run Voxel Turf? My laptop does.

Chipset is g41 aka flaming trash so better off just shoving a q6600 in there, bsel mod to 333fsb for 3ghz, and be done with it because unlike the far superior g31, g41 has an fsb limit of 400fsb, extremely pathetic and wont get your cpu very far at all, only good chipsets in the 40 chipsets are p45 and x48, the others are flaming trash and only useful for q6600 cpus due to their garbage fsb capability.

 

g31 > 41,43, and g/q45 in terms of fsb capability (my g31m s2c does 542 max, might go higher with some nb and sb voltmodding along with running the vrms at 14v for higher cpu volt)

No there are 2 different sizes of your pc. Look up dell 380 mid tower and dell 380 sff then tell us which you have. Depending on the version your options are more limited.

I see them for below 50 on ebay all the time.

Maybe keep in mind that game came out 9 years past the last core 2 quad came out so chances of it running well are limited if it even runs at all. That and the board in the 380 is pretty bad so you can't exactly put a high end core 2 quad in there either.

 

My advice honestly would be to just save up some more and get a decent used gaming system instead of wasting money on a old office pc that even when upgraded to the max is still an old office computer but now a bit faster.

oof cant fit full height PCIe cards inside. Those either hang outside or you have to use low profile cards which are more expensive and rare.

Yeah that makes it even harder. Honestly don't waste money on a system that is about 14 years old by now and just sell it/give it away it's just too old to be really useful. I highly recommend being smarter with your money and buying a newer used dell with a older i7 + a gpu or a complete older gaming system.
