So i have a trooper that just wont quit. It's a Dell E521 and I plan on throwing a 6000+ 89w I found on Fleabay. Plug and play, Correct? I understand I need to make sure that my bios is up to date, anything else? Drivers? I'm still running Windows XP Pro SP3, it's just a movie, CADD, and word processing machine. Also what PS should i look for as I'm going to be needing more juice than 300 watts can supply, that has reared it's head after my HDMI card I've installed. Thank you people's, Jeff.

Update BIOS first, then according to user experiences 6000+ should work, if it's 89W part.

 

You may install AMD dual core optimizer. Also it's possible that Windows is using Uniprocessor HAL (don't automatically switch to Multiprocessor HAL) but if that happens, you'll notice it after new CPU is installed.

 

Standard ATX PSU should fit so you have endless possibilities. What shop are you planning to use?

Thermaltake, and Corsair are the two companies I prefer. Full mod 500-600 watt. I read the post you made in regards to AMD vs the I5 and 7, about the computer build. I have a rack case that needs new internals, so I might be building a new AMD. Not any time here soon though.
