We have a Dell computer that has a Xeon processor (Intel Xeon Processor 5110).  This is a dual core and 2.56GHz.  We would love to upgrade the processor.

Question:

Can any Xeon LGA 771 work for this, or do I have to stay in the same WoodCrest family?

Well, you need to check the Dell specifications and documentation for your motherboard/computer.

If the system does not have support for the chip (eg in the BIOS) it may or may not work.

As an example I have a Dell Optiplex with socket 775.  There are members of that 775 family that will plug in but not work.  At present I run a Pentium D in it - that chip is not supported by Dell and yet the system works.

So again, check the Dell specifications and documentation.  They should list the CPUs that the board/computer supports.
