If you live near a Micro Center I suggest you pick up a Core 2 Quad Q9550 for ~ $150.

Hi,

I got the P5W.

Asus says that it support E8xxx dual and Q9xxx quads, but don't trust them.

A lot of people got trouble, because those are 1333fsb processor and the board does not support it well.

Your best bet is to get a Q6600 or Q6700 on the used market.

9xxx series 45nm quads are a bad choice for that unit. Those chips were released long after the board was released. As mentioned the 65nm Q6600/6700 is the best suited quad for the 975 chipset.
