  1. the board has a 915 chipset, too old for dual core. I suggest my old "boston" 775 board for around $60 on ebay. It requires ddr2. Your old board uses ddr.

    hi well thnx may i get your email and what do you have it listed for
    does it have pci express slot how much capacity does it hold and so on
    so thnx my email is happymouser@hotmail.com
  3. I tried sending you email. The "boston" has a pci-e 2.0 slot and works with the e7200 or e8400 core2 duo cpus, but I can't be sure it will work with newer quads. You'll have to go through several pages on ebay to locate one. If you can't find a boston, an older chipset is the 965. Don't buy anything until you check other branded micro atx boards and read my email. If you buy from a good vender, he will list the hp boards specs on his webpage. Don't buy unless you're sure it will support the cpu you want to buy.
