You won't know until you try it I'm afraid. That model is a few years old now and I doubt whether Dell even list Win 7 drivers for it, though you could check that on their website for a start - you need the exact model of the system to do so. The other consideration is the amount of RAM you have - a base Optiplex probably only has 512Mb and Win7 ideally needs a minimum of 1Gb.

With enough memory installed, probably. But run the MS Upgrade Advisor to be sure:
