Need help for Upgrade: E8500
Mar 30, 2009, 12:40 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.
