are i7 870 or xeon x3470 going to work on dell inspiron 580?

Hello, i have bios version A07, and i want to upgrade my cpu since it is very weak for gaming. Can i upgrade to an i7 870? Here in the list of compatible CPUs by the chipset h57, the i7 870 is listed: ark.intel.com/.../Intel-H57-Express-Chipset

My motherboard model is the 0C2KJT

If not what is the best cpu i can upgrade? Maybe i5 760 or Xeon X3470?

EDIT:

I confirm that xeon x3470 works on my DELL Inspiron 580 with motherboard Dell 0C2KJT and bios date 20101113
