Upgrading CPU

Jump to solution

I am wanting to upgrade my cpu without upgrading my motherboard.  My system configuration is:

Windows Vista Ultimate (build 7100)

Dell Inc. Inspiron 530

Board: Dell Inc. 0RY007
Serial Number: ..CN7360479G02B8.
Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
BIOS: Dell Inc. 1.0.5 09/14/2007

1.60 gigahertz Intel Celeron 420
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
512 kilobyte secondary memory cache

WDC WD2500JS-75NCB3 [Hard drive] (250.00 GB)

I found two processors that I think are compatable with my motherboard but I'm not sure:

Pentium 4 3.2GHz SL7PW 1M/800MHz Socket 775 P4 CPU
Intel BX80571E5200 Pentium Dual-Core E5200 2.5GHz 800MHz Socket 775 45nm CPU

Can someone tell me if these are compatable?  If not can someone point me in the right direction?  Any help would be great.

The Intel BX80571E5200 Pentium Dual-Core E5200 2.5GHz 800MHz Socket 775 45nm processor, should work in the Inspiron 530.

Note: Prior to installing update the BIOS to the latest version.
