Will my Dell 0UY253 take a Quad core CPU.

High all recently bought a Sapphire HD 5770 to upgrade from duel x1950's. <- x2 and from what i can gather the CPU is bottle necking the GPU. I currently have a Intel core 2 duo E6600. I've tried over clocking and it's helped marginally. But not enough to make a notable difference.
The mother details are on thread and the processor is a socket 775 LGA.
I've not got a PHD in pc's so any good advice is severely welcome thanks alot and I wait baited breathe.

  1. It can take an Intel Core 2 Extreme (quad-core processor).
  2. One of the options, when that PC was being marketed, was an Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 Factory Overclocked to 3.2Ghz.
  3. so would it take the QX6800 aswell then ????
  4. Yes. There are/were members in the Dell forum whom have upgraded their XPS 710 to use a QX6800.
  5. would i have to address the cooling of would the current sink be adequate
  6. Hi Mal thanks for the advice been looking at the thermal compound. does the G rating mean the higher the G is the better it conducts heat away from the processor Also if i was to get another GPU would this put me straight back in the same situation RE bottle neck ???
