The GX520 wasn't intended to be used with a 800-series processor. It's likely that Dell didn't build this option into the bios. The chipset can theoretically support it (Intel 945G), but Dell only seems to offer this system with the 500-series and the 300-series processors, so probably they wrote the bios not to support processors other than those.

The GX520 isn't marketed to be high-end, nor for upgrading. You may want to look at a GX620 if you want/need a dual core processor.

Hi,

Read your post today and wonder if Dell has any new BIOS update that will support the Pentium 4 820 CPU since you last posted?

Cheers
