  1. Hey all

    How do I find out if one of the i7 quad cores is compatible with my Dell Dimension
    e521? The motherboard is completely stock, but I've upgraded the RAM to 4gb, and the video card to a nVidia 9800GT. I am just looking around at faster processors because I need one for the software I'm using. Totally not interested in getting a new computer. Oh, and I'm also running Windows 7 32-bit. The processor I'm looking to replace is an Athlon 64 3200+ at 2.0 GHz. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks a lot!
