:hello:  hi pals n gals, this issue has just ate a lot of my time...

i have this Dell XPS 400 system Current specs:
-Pentium D 930 3.0Ghz (4MB/800FSB)
-i945P motherboard (DELL)
-512MB DDR2 X2 @ 667FSB
-XFX HD4770 512MB GPU
-Dell 375Watts PSU

The query is that i wan't to upgrade the CPU... possibly with a C2D or at least a dual core. Dell has a crappy support and does not even care.. the only support the gave me was that.. "TRY IF IT WORKS".. :kaola: 


However i saw this chart of CPU's supported for my chipset at intel "http://ark.intel.com/chipset.aspx?familyID=8764#compati..." according to this my i956P can support the following:

Now the only thing that is confusing for me is that this mother board is 100% i945P chipset BUT it is DELL manufactured... and it is possible that some of these may not be supported by DELL... or may be locked by bios or etc...
Please clarify if any one has tested C2D on this system... DOES C2D really works on it or not?...
if it does than il replace it with a E6600 immediately but if GOD forbid it does not than is there any safe way to make it support it.

Secondly please also advice me if this upgrade would be worth it for me or not... i intend to play all the latest RTS and FPS on high settings @ 1680x1050 at good FPS.

Thanks in advance for your support.. Hopping this issue could be solved :)
