This thread (or parts of it) suggests that it may or may not work

Don't forget about the 6** series too which are 64bit processors while the 5** series are 32bit.

620-670 P4 LGA775 will work too

So the P4 670 does work in a Dell Dimension 4700? B/c I bought one on eBay and power light on the front of my comp kept blinking orange. The comp wouldn't boot up.

But this thread says that it will, with BIOS revision A10.

I purchased a P4 670, Sspec SL7Z3, running @ 3.8 GHz, L2 cache of 2MB. I had already upgraded to the A10 BIOS a while back so when I put the 670 in, reapplying Thermal paste to both processor and heatsink, my 4700 fired right up and has not given any problems. I had also reversed the fan last year and that cooled the case temp down alot.

Conflicting info there, but I suppose it's worth a shot, if the 670 won't cost you much. It's not like it'll be a night and day difference or very worthwhile upgrade anyway, though.
