Motherboard:
Dell Optiplex 740 SFF PY127 w/ AM2 Socket

Current CPU:
AMD Athlon 64 x2 2.0GHz 3800+ 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W
ADO3800IAA5CU

And I want to upgrade to this CPU:
AMD Athlon 64 x2 3.0GHz 6000+ 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 125W

Will this work or do I need to give more information?

Here are 3 PDFs on specs of the desktop, Thanks.

Me personally from what I've been researching lately and what I read from your post; we're in the same boat.!
The bottom line is NO.

Your system can take up to a 6000+ 89W Windsor (ADA6000IAA6CZ), not the 125W version. These are hard to find since they are no longer manufactured, but check around you might find something. Otherwise save your money and build yourself a new system. Plenty of help here if you decide to go that route.

If you're talking about in your system, it wouldn't be much of an improvement. For the OP's system it would be a decent improvement and although he has a small form factor system his heatsink/fan should be adequate.

I Google'd this: http://www.google.com/search?q...g.mozilla:en-US<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif" border="0">fficial&client=firefox-a

After reading this thread I did some quick research. I went through numerous posts and read test results with expert opinions.
The end result is to go with the 5000+ Brisbane Black Edition PERIOD.! Yes, there is a small difference in L2 cache but not enough to make a difference 512k as compared to 1m. The Brisbane actual clock speed is a little faster.
Research for yourself and you will see.
As a result of this post, I think I too have found my answer.
