Prior to advising on CPU, we need clarification of your Dell PC model - according to MOBO you have Optiplex 745, and most likely Mini Tower version (regular looking configuration, not skinny).

Second question - are you residing in US or elsewhere - you would have to look for used parts for cooling upgrade etc.

Third question. What is your budget? Provide in your currency please.

Forth and last one. What is the purpose of your upgrade?

Your turn.

I am far away from home, using iPhone, so I will provide you with simple answer, and will elaborate sometimes after tommorrow (when I get home) if needed.
Maximum upgrade is Q6600 or Q6700, those ones are cheaper ones, there is one more, more expensive one, but I need to get home to my bookmarks to find out.

Meantime
http://item.mobileweb.ebay.co.uk/viewitem?sbk=1&nav=SEA... check it up, Q6600 is in your budget so far.

Next, open your PC case and take a look at CPU cooler, 2 questions:
First, which color it is, white top?
Second configuration, vertical panels or horizontal?
If answer is white and vertical - you have aluminum cooler and need upgrade.
If answer is gray thin plates parallel to motherboard with a few vertical yellow pipes - you have the performance one, called copper at times, in this situation no upgrade is necessary, unless you want overclock.

Short on overclock. Generally Dells can not be over locked, but with certain processors it is possible. Q6600 is one of them. It can be overclocked from 2.4GHz to 3GHz relatively easy, but you might have to (might not) improvise with cooling uphrase.

So what is your reaction to overclock?

Your turn now.
