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.
