Looking at the Dell manual, it seems you maybe can run a Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 Processor (2.66GHz, 8MB L2 cache, 1066MHz FSB, VT)

in your system.


Here is the manual describing the different configurations

What's the intent...of this upgrade?  What do you think upgrading your CPU will do for your system...if you don't upgrade other components as well?

What is the intent? I am also installing a new video card,/graphic card, for game playing. Radeon HD 6750, or the new model XFX R7 250E 800 MHz 4GB.

Thank you

that is socket 775 so the c2q 6700 should be ok . you would need to be sure that the cpu and motherboard are ok with the same ram though. they both have specs for the ram they can work with. my c2q 6600 uses ddr2 6400.


so happens that i just looked up the cards that would compliment the cpu you already have.  there is a new nvidia line , it is the 750ti and low and behold, the thing is dropped down considerably. they are normally around 150 usd.  it is almost as nice as the gtx 660 and way better than a 6750 or r7 250. these 750ti cards are the low power sort so your existing power supply would probably be just fine




if amd is your preference, there is a few r7 260x cards that have dropped considerably in price also..
