It would be to cheaper to get a decent (non-Dell) motherboard & just overclock the Q6600. Going from it's default clock settings (9 x 266MHz @ 1066MHz FSB) to the same clock settings as the Q9400 (8 x 333MHz @ 1333MHz FSB) would be simple. In fact, you could easily clock it up to 3.0GHz without any problems.

But to get to your question, I doubt the Q9400 would run at the proper speed in the Dell board, if it runs at all.
