I have a Dell XPS 600 with: Dell 0GC375 motherboard and Intel Pentium 4 3.2 ghz. CPU-Z shows: Socket 775 LGA, corespeed 3192.6 MHz, Rated FSB 798.2 MHz. I'm searching everywhere for info on compatible CPU upgrades for this setup and have totally confused myself. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hello jclamster...

You should be able to use any Socket 775 Intel processor, though you may need to do a BIOS update to get support for the newest cpu's.

It would be a good idea to check with Dell Support before ordering, though.

Thanks. Dell support was particularly useless...first rep said there were no upgrades, waited for another rep and gave up.

DO I have to be concerned about my motherboard FSB speed when picking an upgrade cpu? I read that during my google search.

I do know that your mobo will support up to the E6600...beyond that, I'm not sure.
