  1. Just make sure you have a Dual core socket like if you have an intel socket, I know some Intel Duals with fit the LGA 775 or with AMD just make sure its a AM2 socket. If your not to sure just post the name of your motherboard on here or the name of your CPU and I could find out what socket type you have. Thanks for your question though.

    I'm not sure if you can use the E5300 or 5400 please check my link.

    I looked through the CPU support of your motherboard and I see the E6300, E6400, and E6700.

    I mean just look at the link and if you need help finding a place to buy these types of CPU's just go to:

    I really hope I help you out. Thanks for your questions and if you have any other ones just post them.
