I would personally consider the Q9550. The extra cache is worth 6% performance plus the faster clock speed seems worth the extra cost to me. But I tend to work from the top down, and not the bottom up when looking for CPUs. I believe the T3400 has native support for X3360 CPU. It also supports QX9650 Core 2 Extreme. Justajohn at Tomshardware reports 4.15GHz using Throttlestop software overclock.
I've had a dell Optiplex 745 running QX6800 at 3.45, and 3.72GHz so if your willing to explore software overclocking then Core 2 Extremes can produce results not available by other methods. Delidded.com has a price and availability tool in their CPU info page.

I tried the DDR2-1066 Memory and it only ran at 800. I may try to trick it into running later but it doesn't happen by itself.

A lot of people prefer the A09 BIOS to the A14. A14 supports Windows signing, A09 already supports QX9650. Some people report problems with A14 and certain testing software.

I've wired up a Delta GFB1212VHG two motor fan into the stock housing to run off of a Molex (this creates a hit F1 error at boot). I run this fan setup @ 100% speed for validation runs. I also put a 1.8A. Nydec betaV into the case fan holder. 90X38mm. It was a Pentium4 CPU blower. Enzotech heatsinks on all the MOSFETS. I have my 3x 120GB SSDs. I'm waiting for a 320GB laptop HDD for backup, and some brackets to hang them all in the 2 floppy drives.

I cut out the front HDD cage. This gives me some better fan options Like 2- 150X50mm Deltas after I see how fast it will go.

There is a Dell 525W PSU for these with 2x 6 pin GPU connectors.

I learned something about the X38 chipset memory support. If you force the FSB to 400 it only has memory timing straps to boot with DDR2-800. The DDR3 is really strange. 1066 or 1600, but not 1333. since 4 GB DDR2-1066 don't seem to exist I guess 4GB DDR2-800 modules will be the way to go.

Be that as it may, when you say "didn't work" what actually happened?

There is a known issue with R series AMDs and the Dell BIOS video resolution not being supported. But they should run. Did you completely remove the drivers for the old GPU first? Then swap the cards, boot to safe mode and install new drivers? Some people prefer BIOS A09. It doesn't have windows signing and supports QX9650. I don't know what newer CPUs A14 supports. 2x HD7850s have been run successfully. Once you get the GPU sorted out you could BSEL pinmod that to 3.6GHz. A volt pinmod would be needed also.

Sorry I should've said it throws the video error 1 34. I'm tweaking the bios code got some compatibility for fun. Dell as per usual stripped the bios of its ability to do basic tasks when booting with them in compatibility and it's registering backwards compatibility. Gonna post it over on the t3400 thread on Tom's hardware. Also figured out the had way I can't go lower the a09. Got it back on what I'm calling a16 since someone already made a15 with with everything setup for throttle stop. Sorry if people consider that a thread hijack. but I consider it more contributing to the 1st result on the subject. That the machine is super picky on cards and likes to throw 1 34 error.

Does A15, A16 fix the VESA 103 issue? Where are those available? I'm afraid my software skills are about zero. I agree on the Hijack issue. Something as obscure as overclocking Dell BTX workstations doesn't need a dozen different threads that go nowhere. This is a good fit at LGA775 Club though. But anyone searching for T3400 help might not look there.
