Need help for Upgrade: E8500 Tags: CPUs Last response: March 31, 2009 2:45 PM in CPUs Share flafonta March 30, 2009 12:40:46 AM I currently have a E6400 on a P5B MB with 2GB Patriot DDR2 PC2-5300 (667MHz), running XP. I would like to make a few upgrades to my system. Can I just put a E8500 in? (Is my memory fast enough?) I see that the Asus MB supports that CPU with their latest BIOS. Any other issues? Do I need to change the BIOS settings or is it all automatic? (I see that the FSB is faster on the E8500). I also plan to upgrade my GPU from a 7950GT to a 4870. Thanks!
