It would help...if readers knew exactly what system you have...and whether it's a desktop or a laptop.

 

CPU compatibility and options are determined based on the motherboard.

Yeah, your title makes your question a bit confusing. Are you buying for your laptop, or desktop.

 

And note it is up to the motherboard whether a CPU is compatible or note. Since notebooks don't normally use the same motherboards as PCs, compatibility is likely to be a big issue.

Neither of those AMD processors will fit an OptiPlex 755.

 

The OptiPlex 755 requires Intel Core 2 (or related Celeron or Pentium) processors. The fastest of these you can fit is I believe the Core 2 Quad Q9650, although the slightly slower Q9550 will probably be easier to find & cheaper. You will almost certainly not be able to buy these processors new. You would probably need to ensure that you have the latest BIOS update installed to run these processors in an OptiPlex 755. (this was typed on an OptiPlex 755 with a Q9550).

I have an Optiplex 755...what RQT posted seems 100% on the mark.  IMO, it would not be worth the time it took to upgrade that CPU.
