Yes, both processors use the LGA 775 socket type. It will work.

Do google search first, some dell motherboards are limited to how fast of processer can be installed by the BIOS. in the Dell 8300 i used to have, the highest i could upgrade was a 3.2Ghz Northwood. The 9150 is new enough that you should have no problems though, but i would still do a search just to be sure/
