    Is that your motherboard? If yes, then it has LGA 775 but it doesn't support dual cpu like Pentium D, so you're stuck with your current Pent. 4 and Celeron D CPU...
  2. As happens with most pre-built OEM computers there isn't alot you can do for upgrading the RAM and CPU. Other then gutting the whole thing and putting in a new mobo, ram, and cpu your pretty much stuck. If you were going to do all that you would be better off trtashing the Dell and just building your own.
