Will this support my E7500 ?

So i currently got a E2180 (Not OCed) and its been a time of glory for this cpu, the best bang for the buck ive ever had (Ive built 20+ PCs) . Now its time to upgrade it for something better since the 2.00ghz is kinda dissapointing these days and I dont like OCing on my home pc (Not my gaming one). The question would be: Does my PC Chips P29G Motherboard support a E7500 from Intel or even a Q6600. I meet the requirements of Socket, FSB . If its not supported could you reccomend a procesor that would be a increase over my current E2180 for this Mobo.


Thanks in Advance, John

    If you do decide to upgrade the motherboard and want the best bang for your buck I would suggest going with an AMD tri or quad core. Depending on the motherboard you will be able to reuse your DDR2 RAM to save on cost.
  7. I will get a new Intel mobo (I Have been Intel fanboy since p3 :P ) so yeah i can get a sub 100 dls mobo and the procesor and maybe i got the ability to save the money for the ram :) THanks again :p
