I am looking at purchasing a used Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad Core QX9650. I am wondering if it is compatible with my Gateway e6300 which currentky has a P4 3.4ghz. I would apprecieate your feedback and whether it would be worth the upgrade(assuming it is compatible).
Thank you for the advice and links you posted. I am assuming that after looking at the links you provided that my system won't support and core 2 processors at all. Just P4's and Celerons. Would a Pentium D work instead or is it unsupported in it as well?
It sure looks like the dual core Pentium 4 6xx like the P4 660 3.6GHz should be supported.
In cases like this you're probably better off trying to find some Gateway support forums and finding out what other e6300 owners are successfully using for upgrades.
