Solved Motherboards and Instruction Sets Tags: Motherboards Intel Gateway Last response: September 22, 2011 7:02 AM in Motherboards Share Izaran September 15, 2011 4:24:33 AM I have an old Intel d915GUX taken from a scrap Gateway e3400, and I have a number of questions, which I will go into depth in a bit. Background: Intel D915GUX 3GB RAM (Supports max of 4GB DDR2 533Mhz) LGA 775 Socket (Holding: Pentium 4 HT Prescott 3.2 GHz) BIOS is up to Gateway's last release of the BIOS Now, my questions are this: Can this board support x64-bit Instruction Set? If not does THIS board support x64-Bit IS Intel BOXDG43GT Also LGA 775 Socket More about : motherboards instruction sets Izaran September 15, 2011 4:26:08 AM And please, no one suggest AMD boards. I don't like AMD, the last one I had the Southbridge just...died. Also, I feel safer with the LGA sockets, not having pins on the CPU to break makes me feel more comfortable.

What processor do you have some Prescotts suport 64 bit instructions and some don't? Izaran September 15, 2011 7:43:20 PM I have the Prescott 3.2Ghz Cant say much considering I am not at home to check the cpu in depth. I was led to believe by the technician who gave me the board that the bus width on the board determines the bit limits of the system. But it is good to know it is the processor and not the motherboard. Izaran September 22, 2011 7:02:16 AM Best answer selected by Izaran. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
