Is C2D E7500 works with GA-945GCM-S2L mobo?

I am currently using a P4 3.06 and Gigabyte GA-945GCM-S2L motherboard..
I want to upgrade my processor to intel core 2 duo E7500.. Can my motherboard support it? or do i need to buy a new motherboard?

    If so, yes. It would be a good idea to update the BIOS first.

    That's from the link you provided, under the CPU supported tab. I'm not sure why there are all those blanks up top. If you scroll down to where they start listing CPUs that are supported, the 7500 is listed. Just make sure you have the F8b bios installed BEFORE you put that CPU in.
  5. so i just have to upcdate my bios with p4... am i right?
  6. if i update it to f8b.. will my p4 run smooth with that bios?
  7. your p4 will run the same as it always did the update just makes it possible to upgrade to a newer processor thats all
  8. i need help!!! i tried using this cpu-id and my core speed only runs 1866.. the question is why does my pentium 4 prescott 524 3.06ghz HT only runs its core speed at 1866 instead of 3.06 in my GA-945GCM-S2L mobo?
