|I could not find a processor support list for your Dell 520 (maybe it is their site, maybe it in an incomplete model number, maybe my brain is on vacation) but both are Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo processors, so I would say that If you can 'Load Optimal Settings' in your BOIS after the swap out, it should work just fine. [I guess I am assuming you do not intend to use your Gateway again, unless you plan on downgrading that one and also using it or selling it.... Should work too.]|
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
