I need to know if the Pentium D 945 processor is compatible with the dell 0U880P motherboard. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Since this is an Inspiron 537 motherboard with 300w or less power supply I would say no its not compatible.

Upgrading the power supply, will not make the Pentium D 945 compatible.

Note: Prior to installing the processor, update the BIOS to the latest version A03.
It has contained and operated with a celeron 450 for 3 years or so, so that list is incomplete
