    Assuming your MB is compatible with the new cpu, if you install it and it works then NO, remember with itel stuff, just because its the same socket doesnt mean it will work with the MB, I hope you have done your homework in that regard

    yeah if it works then leave it, you would only need to flash bios if cpu didnt work. must be they didnt have 2.8/400fsb when Dell information was written, good for you, that was actually a decent cpu upgrade(y)
