  1. Hello and welcome to the forums
    Check ASUS's support site
    http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
    You can use all Core2 Quad CPUs on it
  2. 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.

  4. 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.
