Hi.

Its great you want to upgrade your processor.

But lets think about what you select...Intel only sodders HALF of there processors correctly...

I would recommend an AMD processor.

Second. What type of Socket does your motherboard require. As it will reflect your upgrade.

Wait...Crap...Your motherboard is full of intel crap.

I suggest you look for Motherboards and processors that come together which may apply to the specifications of your outer components.

But if your computer is FULLY manufactured by Dell, I recomend you use it until it dies.

Then buy a costom built or an HP.

I appreciate you love your AMD CPU's COLE but trashing Intel because you want your AMD shares to go back up if not going to help this guy at all.

As it does stand at the moment Intel actually make the best performing CPU's and the bench marks you will find around the net will back this up. All I can say COL is SELL,SELL,SELL and buy intel

I'll have a look around and see what CPU's may be compatable with your chipset.

EDIT: From what I can tell you should be able to upgrade to the Pentium D dual core, I could,'t see any support for the C2D's

Hey traynor,

I had a look around based on chipset not motyherboard

but what I did find was interesting

this ASUS board did support C2D with a bios upgrade

P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe
AI Lifestyle Gaming Edition
NVIDIA SLI™ Technology
NVIDIA® nForce4 SLI x 16


The thing is I am not sure if Dell have released a bios upgrade for your board or not that will allow your C2D upgrade.
But from my intial search on your chipset is does seem possible but it may be worth ringing dell

check with Dell but there was a bios update released for your board but i can not find out actually what addition CPU support it added. You will also have to confirm this is the bios you need

I am not a rep of AMD. And I do not have stock at AMD.

In fact Both of my PC's use AMD. I do want to help him.

The Very nature that he is using an Dell is just proof enough. This is serous.

Dells last up to an year and a half...

And I am NOT going to buy INTEL...
