More about support dual core
  1. We need to know what motherboard you have to know if it supports a dual core CPU. Many LGA 775 boards do but some of the older ones do not. If its a prebuilt system also post the model number.

    manufactured:MSI
    Model:0A90
    Chipset:Intel---946PL/GZ
    Southbridge:Intel---82801GB(ICH7/R)

  5. The 0A90 seems to be a special HP motherboard, whats the model number of the system it came in? From what im seeing it came in the DX2300, is this the system you have? If so your CPU support list is a little bit down this page.
