  1. no, that CPU isn't even of the same socket, it will not work in that dell...

    judging by your lack of any PC knowledge, i would suggest staying away from overclocking.
  2. THERE IS NO NEED TO BE RUDE!!!!
    WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE THAT CPU WORK WITH MY PC?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. buy a new PC.

    im not being rude, you are either a troll, or incredibly lazy.

    that CPU would require a new motherboard, RAM and most likely a new PSU too. if you had done any research whatsoever you would know this.

    what you have done is like going to a military forum and asking how to attach an anti air gun to your pistol.
  4. IM NOT YOUR BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. A couple of things, first please try to forgo the excessive exclamations - it makes it sound like you're shouting. Second, yes that is an excellent processor but look for the i7 980x, it's similar in price and far outperforms the 975.

    As far as getting either of those CPUs into you current computer, that's completely impossible. As stated earlier, they have different sockets (pin layouts), so you would need a new motherboard and ram for sure. You also might need to replace several other components, like the power supply. The i7 980x is socket LGA 1366. Check on newegg for these type of motherboards and start from there. You're more or less looking at a completely new system. What is it you intend to do with this system? Start with picking out components that all work together. As for overclocking, I would only recommend that AFTER you have built your own computer.
  6. um, i think its a troll.

    i wish i could banhammer. the forums would feel my wrath.
  7. no im not a troll i just need help what would the best thing to get for my pc
