Re: IGPU Power consumption

Pretty sure on the 2550k, Intel lasered (as is their usual method) the on-die GPU connections so it ends up drawing no power at all since the circuit to it is broken. But you are right that it is still on the chip wasting space.

Re: Intel Q35 Compatibility

The issue you might run into is lithography compatibility. With a chipset that old, Dell may not have issued a BIOS update to support 45nm CPUs, which the CPU you want to upgrade to is. You're currently running 65nm. Being that the quad you want is 45nm, power requirements are more than likely equal...
