It depends. Assuming the machine is running XP now, do you want to keep anything on it, or are you fine with starting over? Also, what are the specifications (CPU, memory (RAM,) hard drive size and free space) on the machine?
If it's currently running XP, you probably have less than 4 Gb RAM and are running a 32 bit version. (Check by right clicking "My computer" and bringing up properties.) If you *really* don't know, most Dells have an Express Service Code on a tag on the machine - you can use that, paste it in on Dell's support site, and get the information from there.
The *best* way to do this, which will give the fewest problems and give the best experience, is to not upgrade but format the drive and just start cleanly. You should have the option to do this when you put the WIndows 7 DVD in and boot the machine. Be sure to save any data (documents, pictures and the like) from the current installation first, either onto disk or online services like Google Drive, MS Onedrive and the like. You *will* need to reinstall your programs, however.

Hi I'm Rain.
The problem is that you have to diffrent system models. When Windows is booting up for the first time it loads the neccesary Drivers for the system model. You will have to obtain the Windows disk and do a system repair or a full Clean install .
This will load all the drivers for your system model.
You can try rebooting and hitting F8 to get to advanced settings.in Advanced settings select Last known good configuration.
If this fail . The configuration is wrong and Windows won't boot.

Unfortunately, Dell doesn't support Windows 7 for the OptiPlex GX260. You could try an older driver and see if it will work, but you can't get any Windows 7 drivers for the GX260. (At least not yet.)
You can view a list of Dell computers that are Windows 7-compatible here:
