Does this processor work as an upgrade for my Dell XPS Studio 7100 desktop PC? AMD FD8350FRHKBOX FX-8350 FX-Series 8-Core Black Edition Processor

I want to upgrade the processor in my desktop and was wondering what processors would work. I found this one on Amazon. It's supposed to be a later model from the one I have in my PC currently.

Yeah, I guess that would be helpful, huh?! It has the 2.6 GHz AMD Phenom 2 X6 1035T. The socket is an AM3. Thanks for the help!

Oh, not sure if you were asking for more information regarding my PC specs other than CPU and socket type. I know just enough to be dangerous, lol. If you need more specs, let me know.

well the pins will line up. now we need to find out what chipset you have. see if you can find out exactly what motherboard you have

According to the Studio XPS 7100 Setup Guide, p.60 http://downloads.dell.com/manuals/all-products/esuprt_desktop/esuprt_studio_xps_desktop/studio-xps-7...

The system uses Athlon II or Phenom II CPUs on a motherboard with 785E / SB710 chipset, and up to DDR3-1333 DDR.

This would not be compatible with FX-Series CPUs. The Phenom II X6 1100T should be the fastest compatible CPU, although it has a 125W TDP and will run somewhat hotter than the 95W TDP Phenom II X6 1035T.
