Hi,

 

I have a Dell Precision Workstation 650, currently running two Xeon 3.2ghz's, and I just found out that quad core Socket 604 processors exist. Would my computer be able to use two of these, or am I stuck with single core?

Dell spec sheet says the 650 can use this:

Ark shows that CPU uses 1066MHz FSB...

I couldn't find a list of compatible processors for that model. On Dell's site that might be possible but it requires a service tag.

Check for BIOS updates from Dell, it most-likely will tell what quad-core CPUs are compatible.
