Is this CPU compatible with my computer?

Nick August 23, 2011

I have a Dell Dimension 4700 that can support Intel Pentium 4 processor 520, 530, 540, 550, 560, or 570, and I’m looking to upgrade from a Intel Pentium 4 520. Will a Intel BX80571E5700 Pentium Dual Core E5700 Processor work with my computer?

    WTF! How can you install a DualCore processor in a motherboard that supports only P4..?
    It just cannot be done.
    If you are really looking forward to upgrade.. you really need purchase a new motherboard which supports the latest processors..

    One thing...i don't understand is your reason to upgrade the processor..?
    If you r looking to performance boost..
    Upgrade RAM instead..! (now don't ask whether DDR2 or DDR3),
    Ur motherboard supports DDR2 ONLY!

      Okay, calm down. It's not a rally. 

      James is right, it's not compatible.

    No. Your machine supports: Intel Pentium 4 processor 520, 530, 540, 550, 560, or 570

    Dual Core ... is not on that list. E5700 and P4 570 are two differtn CPUs I'm afraid. 

    Not worth upgrading that. Just buy a new machine.
