I have a dell E521 I purchased on 3\07, that came with: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 3800+ (I think it's 2.0GHz)
After searching and reading posts here, most are old though, I think New Egg has an upgrade that will work: Intel Pentium Dual-Core E5400 Wolfdale 2.7GHz 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor
I just want to verify with someone if this is correct. If not can someone point me in the right direction.
My OS is windows 7 4gig of ram ATI 4300 video card. Main reason for upgrade: I do a lot of Photoshop work and I'm hoping a processor upgrade will help. Heck for $70, to me, it's worth a try.
Thanks in advance for the help, -Rich

You can not put an Intel Processor in a board for an AMD it wont work.
I think this would be the fastest you could put in that board.
