I've bought a HP built PC about a year ago and I wanted to upgrade my E2220 to a Q8400. Since my E2220 seems to be bottle necking my GPU and effecting my gameplay. Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
* Intel Core 2 Quad (Y) Q9xxxx * Intel Core 2 Duo (W) E8xxx * Intel Core 2 Quad (K) up to Q6600 * Core 2 Duo E6x00 (C) up to E6700 * Core 2 Duo E4x00 (C) up to E4400
But I don't see anything about the Intel Core 2 Quad (Y) Q8xxxx series. If it supports the Q9xxxx series it should suppor the Q8xxxx right? Because right now I can only afford a CPU and not a new motherboard.
