More about compatible motherboard please
  1. C2Q/C2D is listed as a CPU type, and the G33 should support all C2 CPUs. You should have no issues running the 8500. Make sure you update this bios before you take the old CPU out so your new CPU will get recognized.
  2. $200 for 1ghz is not worth it, especially when $200 can get a better cpu+mobo. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.642579 But your ram isn't compatible with SB.
  3. so this is pretty much the best I can get for the money? I did look around :p and I couldent find anything better, maybe I am looking wrong..
