... in my opinion it would not be worth it at all to upgrade your CPU now... just wait until you do your full upgrade and put that money towards a better GPU or an SSD... i have been running on this old d 840 since i bought it on its release date more than 6 years ago
... trust me, you will be much happier with that extra $80 for your future upgrade than you will with getting a new processor now to tide you over
... not to mention dell bios dont tend to like to jump series (from D to E for example), and can be a total pain from my experiences
... honestly though, it is totally up to you... you should be able to use any of the first generation C2D processors with your current mobo
