    Yeah I dont think it can, I couldnt find out since support.dell.com only has info for the 4600 and 4600c not the 4600i but I'm guessing its a P4 and if so then no you cant but I need to specs to tell for sure

    I couldn't find his mobo specs (only its connectors, very useful especially when they tell you the CPU socket is a "CPU socket" without telling you the type).... but after looking at the type of ram, it's only DDR1. AFAIK, C2D + DDR1 = no no.
