I am wihing to upgrade from a Q6600 to an E8400. I'm not sure whther my motherboard supports dual-core. Will it be ok to upgrade? Will I notice a performance increase in games with the new CPU (will it work more smoothly with my Radeon 4870?)

why dont you just overclock your quad to 3gig same as e8400.i have mine at 3.2 gig and stable.if your mb supports quad it should support dual core.
