  1. Dell usually made LGA775 computers based on BTX standard, which places motherbord components on different locations, including expansion slots. Check what is your motherboard, you can find (usually) service manuals ad support.dell.com
  2. My motherboard is DG33M05. its LGA775 and Form Factor is Micro-ATX.

  3. Thats a bit pricey. Check out the asrock 775 board, they still make one. But you have to tell us what the cpu is, if it is lower than a q6600 you are wasting your time. Q6600's are only worth $33 and a haswell 2core pentium is 10% more powerful.

  4. my pc configurations are

    * 3 gb ddr2 ram
    * 250 w psu
    *1 tb hdd
    *core 2 duo processor
    thats all i know about my pc.
  5. Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E7500
    (3M Cache, 2.93 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB)
  6. It is irelivant . an E7500 is worth about 17 dollars.
    Start again with a new haswell 1150 board. A new dual core is twice as powerful as that.
  7. so whats your suggestion? should i buy Gigabyte GA-G41M Motherboard?? it says it supports core 2 duo (E7500)
  8. Please reply mate.. its imp**
  9. Sell the E7500 on ebay and buy a 1150 board. Then get the haswell g3220
