Yes,

You can find a list of compatible AMD processors here:

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/p/19490441/20295227.aspx#20295227

This system is shipped with two types of heat sinks: 65W and 95W.

If you are planning to upgrade the CPU, you may have to upgrade the heat sink and the fan.

Also, check that you have the latest BIOS version installed, prior to installing the CPU.
