Hi to all,

I have a question about compatibility. Is an Asus P5W DH Deluxe motherboard + Intel Quad Core Q6600 a good match?

The trick is to look in the manual of the motherboard and see which chipset it has. Then look to see if the Q6600 actually supports that chipset. If it does, it's a match.

Here's the specs I have for the motherboard:

LGA775 socket for Intel Pentium 4 / Celeron CPU
FSB 1066/800 MHz
Intel 975X+ICH7R
Dual DDR2 800/667
External IEEE 1394 port + IEEE 1394 connector
External SATA port + SATA connectors
ASUS Stack Cool 2

and these for the CPU

Core2 Quad Q6600
LGA775 Pkg
2.40 GHz
8MB L2 Cache Total
1066 MHz FSB
Requires electrically compatible board - PCG 05B

Please, educate a noobee... what do I have to look for in here to see the match?
