Up to two single-core 64-bit Intel Xeon HT processors at up to 3.8GHz, up to 2MB L2 cache.
Up to two dual-core 64-bit Intel Xeon processors at 2.8GHz, up to 2MB L2 cache.

If the front of your system chassis is labeled with a "II," your system is upgradeable to the Dual-Core Intel Xeon 2.8 GHz Processor with 4 MB L2 cache.

Call Dell for a complete list of validated and supported part numbers.  As this is not published anywhere that I know of, you will need to contact Tech Support.  800-456-3355 ... call is free whether in or out of warranty.

No problem.  You probably already know this, but make sure you update your BIOS and ESM before upgrading your processor, as most BIOS revisions add support for various processors or for various features.
