Processor for Gigabyte GA-81E m/b

  Catastrophe 15:36 07 Jan 2009

I have bought a GA-81E on eBay and already have ATX PSU and case. I have ordered some PC3200 184 pin RAM and am looking for a good compatible processor. A Pentium 4 2.0 or 2.4 GHz has been mentioned in one thread. Any ideas please?

I hope I am right in thinking 81E and 81 EXW would take the same RAM?

Many thanks in advance for any suggestions.

ambra 4

Many thanks for that. Looks like any Socket 478 Pentium 4 is OK.
