I was wondering if I can upgrade my cpu
from amd athlon x2 7550 to athlon II x4 635?

-Dell Inspiron 546MT
Amd Atlon x2 7550 * 95W*
Dell motherboard
0F896N A03
Chipset
780G Rev.00
Bios
A11 01/19/2010

I'm going to use my stock dell mobo, but would like to
upgrade cpu only.
1. Would AM3 CPU work on AM2 Motherboard?
2. Would Triple/ Quad Cpu work on AM2 Motherboard?
(I willl stay under 95W on cpu)

Check with Dell if a BIOS enables an AM3 socket CPU to be an option ^^
