The EX 950 is an Intel Processor currently used in Dell Optiplex computers. Both the
E 7500 and the EX 950 go into the Socket 775 LG. Wether or not the processor will work on my motherboard is what I am trying to find out. Gigabyte compatible processor list does not show the EX 950 although this processor is newer that the motherboard. The compatibility list may not be current as of now. I could just put it in and that may be risky to do. I just don't know.
