Testimonial: "whould this CPU work with my dell? REALLY I NEED TO KNOW"
Well your pretty limited as far as upgrading the processor since you would almost certainly have to change the motherboard, besides the processor is quite fast.
If your interested in mainly gaming the first thing I would upgrade is the RAM maxing it out.
For the E521 your looking at a max of 4GB
http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Dimension%20E521 this website is a great place to buy RAM. You probably only have 1GB in the computer now so I would recommend added another 3GB to hit the 4 max this will cost you about $65 at crucial.com
