Hello everyone,

I have an Alienware X51 (i3 Core) and I was looking to upgrade my Processor. Will this one fit?

Also, will I have to upgrade the graphics card as well?

Thanks

No because the Intel® Core™ i3-4130 Processor (direct from the alienware website) in your rig is a 4th gen Intel CPU that fits in the 1150 socket while the the i7 you listed only fits the 1155 socket. As an alternative you could ge either the 4670k or the 4770k, both from Intel ofc.
