The performance for virtualization is very RAM heavy, even when 'tweaked to perfection'. You will need to upgrade to DDR3 to transition to any Core i# CPU from Intel. Look at motherboards sporting any of the following Intel chipets from Asus, MSI, Gigabyte and the usual manufacturers/vendors. H55, H57, P55, Q57 X58 if you are looking at a processor with Triple-Channel memory. Double check using http://ark.intel.com that your new processor sports the latest Virtualization Acceleration technologies. (VT-x, etc). It's changed since the E8400 days. Feel free to ask any questions, your English is a little broken and that appears to have turned some people off answering. I hope this has been helpful. PS: If need be I know some people that might be able to assist in translation for more complex questions. m 0 l Scott2010au December 6, 2010 12:12:43 PM If you require a CPU that supports AES-NI that will several limit your options. - Which will also narrow it down, something that might be desirable after all... I believe the processors in question use Socket H, which is LGA1156. Some of the Intel Core i7 processors, one of the series I think 900 series which was retrospectively named, use LGA1366 though. If in doubt check Wikipedia. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA1156 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1366 m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
