can I put a C2D or C2Q even in my old GX280? I have to ask becuase I want a second unit for testing and play; a friend of a friend wants my optiplex for like $100. but if I can get a cheap C2D or C2Q I think that I will keep it. I also want a notebook becuase I'm starting school this summer (again).

The GX 280 only supports Pentium 4s with and without hyperthreading, it will not have any support for a Core 2 CPU unfortunately.
thanks again, I'm done now. next time I should just email you my questions but that way I guess you can't get points for the help.
