More about anybody suggest upgrade pentium
  1. According to the CPU support list for your motherboard it will support the Core2 Quad models on the LGA775 platform. So your best bet would be to go with the best C2Q chip that you can afford. You may need a BIOS update to recognise the new chip and this can be obtained from the ASUS website. Best of luck!
  2. Apologies, I thought the OP said he was after the best CPU he could upgrade to. Obviously it depends on your needs/usage and the rest of your system if you're looking for one that would suit your own needs.
  3. Just make sure the board supports 45nm core 2's, I didn't look it up
  4. Your board will support any Core 2 Quad up to a Q9650. If by any chance you have a MicroCenter near by you can get a Q9550 for $179 or $189 I cant remember which but I know its cheap and that will give you performance on par with a Phenom II 965.

    Looks like a bios updat will be needed so do that before you upgrade the CPU.
  5. Cheapest one would do! thanks for all the suggestions guys

    Cheapest one?

    Is your pentium D fried and you need a replacement?

    If you tell us what you intend to do with it we might suggest you the best processor according to your need :)

    But all the processors mentioned are better than a Pent D :)
