Hello Matthew Penny,
Based on your system chipset these are the processors that were listed as compatible:
Now, to confirm whether those processors will work in your system or not it will be better to get in contact with the system builder at 1-877-293-1197.
thanks for the reply. Couple of things....
called 1 877 (Dell) and they were no help. They couldn't find the machine in the system, and then when I described the issue of wanting to upgrade the cpu, they said talk to my local computer shop. And I did a spec check on the link you put up, but it seems that chip is no stronger than the one I have now. The spec sheet doesn't even show the clock speed. So I did the product compare and found very little to compare, spec sheets are different. So, I'm about to find the # on the motherboard and then go hunting for a compatable chip based on that. I'm sure there is another chip there, since the same model has two quad cores at 3.2 Ghz on my office machine.
Thanks for the attempt
I found these .PDF that may be helpfull for you. Look on page #5.
Again, to confirm whether those processors will work in your system or not it will be better to get in contact with Dell.
