What do you mean by a "Burn 2" processor?

First off, a BIOS update should be in order. This is just to make sure that your motherboard supports the new CPUs you might be putting in.

I suggest you get the Q9550s. Quad core, 45nm (power savings. :) ), and socket 775. Compatible with the Pentium Dual-core socket.

However, I suggest you ask Dell whether your workstation's CPU can be replaced by you.
