Hiya guys,

Just a quick question about a MB.

I'm currently running this bored...

click here

Im running a P4 3.0 Prescott (single core) on it at the moment and needless to say its pretty pants lol

I Know it will support a duel core Pentium D But will it support a Core2Duo? Or even the new Quad core?

I Really wanna upgrade my processor but i dont wanna buy somthing i cant use :)

Any help would be appreciated :)

it will support anything that is an LGA775 slot processor, however it is also worth saying that a fast processor may not be the reason your computer is slow. Care to list the rest of the parts. and getting a top of the line processor and the rest not being to match will often result in no improvement. It would be like a fast car with normal brakes not very useful.

My rig is as follows...

P4 3.0Ghz Prescott
1 x IDE 80GB Maxdor 7200rpm
1 x IDE 120Gb Maxdor 7200Rpm
Gigabyte Nvidia 7900GT 256Mb
2 x 512 Crucial DDR 3200

I Will be upgrading the ram to DDR soon (2gb) but i seriously think its the crappy processor thats bottlenecking my system lol

I Was just crurious if it supported the core2duo and possibly the new Quad core. A Quad core would certainly last me a a couple years before having to upgrade again
