Will a Intel Core i5 3570K Unlocked Quad Core Processor LGA1155 3.4GHZ Ivy Bridge 6MB Retail (http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=12200BD0768) be compatible with a Dell Inspiron 580's motherboard? I'm looking to replace my current i5, 3.2ghz dual core with a quad core 3.4GHz.

Also, does the Intel Core i5 3570K Unlocked Quad Core Processor LGA1155 3.4GHZ Ivy Bridge 6MB Retail even exist? I know it may be stupid, but I haven't found many resources detailing this processor.

I believe I have a '1st generation' Inspiron 580 that only has a 1156 socket in its motherboard? I can't upgrade to a quad core 3.4GHz i5? I don't really know how to check my generation of Inspiron 580. ( http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/206223-new-processor.html )
Thanks.

Thanks DJDeCiBeL and malmental; I wasn't sure and now I am. The 2.8ghz quad core i5 1556 was what I was planning to get originally but hadn't known which sockets I have for my Inspiron 580's CPU. All's fine now.
