  • Hi rmh0597,

    Dell has tested the following i5 processors with Vostro 260:

    • i5-2400,3.1,4C,Sandy Bridge,D2
    • i5-2300,2.8,4C,Sandy Bridge

    Upgrading the power supply is not required as the i5 processor should work with standard power supply shipped with the system.

    Dell does not recommend or offer processor upgrade but it is at your discretion in case you really wish to go ahead with it. Warranty per say, issues arising due to the upgrade will not be covered under warranty, however we will continue providing support for other issues and parts.   

    Hope this helps. Please reply if you have  any questions.

    Thanks & Regards

    I had a Core i7 in a mini-ITX with 220-watt power supply.

  • Hi Texas man,

    Dell has not tested Intel i5-3470 processor with Vostro 260. However, the processor should work with the system. For system Owner Manual, you may refer to the link: http://bit.ly/18OkkIK.
