Will ASUS P5VDC-MX support i7?

Hello. I'd like to upgrade my processor to one of the new i7-860 2.8GHz models. My current mobo is an ASUS p5VDC-MX and it's several years old. Can I get away with installing the i7 in that? It's a socket 775 board so the chip will fit, but I'm wondering if there's anything about it that might impair the performance of the i7, given that it's kind of old.

  1. You motherboard will not support an i7 CPU. You need to purchase either a LGA 1156 or LGA 1366 socket motherboard. They won't work with a LGA 775 socket motherboard.
  2. If you want to run an i7-8xx, what you need is a LGA1156 mobo.
