RE: inserion 530 CPU

Vostro 200 or Inspiron 530 desktop require  G33M03 motherboard AND 350W power supply.

Since you don't currently have a quad I can note that you have 305W

so the answer is still no.

The FoxConn DG33m03 [Dell P/N OFM586/G33M03] motherboard, with a 350w PSU, should support the following:-

Yorkfield Quad Core, Q8300, 2.50GHz, 4MB, 95W,R0

Prior to installing the processor check that you have BIOS Version 1.0.15, or higher installed, when support for new Intel CPU's was added.
