Hello,I was advised to buy a intelcore i7 processor i7-930 2.80GHz 8MB but it doesn't seem to fit. What is the best quad procerror for the motherboard
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.
