precision T7500 CPU upgrade

Hi, All, 

I have a precision T7500 with Xeon 2.13Ghz cpu. Recently, I would like to upgrade it with two core i7 2600/960.
I wonder if the cpu is compatible with the motherboard? Is there any list /recommendation for the cpu upgrade with highest cost effciency ratio?
My budget is limited to 1000. Please let me know, I will appreciate.

Thanks in advance,

RE: precision T7500 CPU upgrade

No, since Core i7s will not work together in dual core systems.

Only Xeon will do that.

Also no handling of ECC memory.

The core i7 2600 uses a totally different socket.
