I need to know if my motherboard will support Intel Core 2 Quad CPUs.
Also, how would a Core 2 Quad Q9400 compare with an AMD Phenom II x3 720? thanks!

  1. What CPU does your computer use now?
  2. I'm pretty sure that your VIA PT890 chipset won't support any of the Core 2 Quad CPUs.

    Here's a PT890 board by Gigabyte showing its CPU list. All those with N/A aren't supported. Might check similar mfgs to see their list.
