Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 compatible with Dell Inspiron 560?

I am looking to upgrade the processor in my Dell Inspiron 560.

It comes with a stock Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.93/2.94GHz on a Intel G43/45 chipset. I want to reach 3.0+ GHz. The Core 2 Duo E8600 is 3.3GHz and would be a good speed for what I want.

I just wanted some confirmation that this processor is compatible with my system.

They are both LGA775 Socket (Socket T).
