precision T7500 CPU upgrade

This question is not answered
Hi, All, 

I have a precision T7500 with Xeon 2.13Ghz cpu. Recently, I would like to upgrade it with two core i7 2600/960.
I wonder if the cpu is compatible with the motherboard? Is there any list /recommendation for the cpu upgrade with highest cost effciency ratio?
My budget is limited to 1000. Please let me know, I will appreciate.

Thanks in advance,

Max

  • No, since Core i7s will not work together in dual core systems.

    Only Xeon will do that.

    Also no handling of ECC memory.

    The core i7 2600 uses a totally different socket.
