Adding a second Quad Core L5420 CPU to a 1950 III

I currently have a 1950 III with a single Quad Core Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU
L5420 @ 2.50GHz, I'd like to add an additional one.
Street price for the L5420 with Heatsink and Fan included is $424.99
Dell wants to charge me $795.00 for the CPU and $49.99 for the Heatsink and
install kit, this is even with "special" pricing discounts applied.
$844.99 vs $424.99
I cant justify the markup.
Am I missing something? Are they including some other special dell only
parts I need to install this?
If I buy the CPU on my own is there any special parts I may need to install
Anyone here who has added second CPU's on their own to their 1950 III's
kindly let me know.
Thanks in advance.
