Hey guys,

I currently have an older Gateway desktop with the following motherboard: 4006160RIntel (Council Bluffs) 945G Viiv Motherboard

Here are the manufacturer specs for the MB:

Processor Support Intel® Pentium® 4, Pentium D, Extreme® or Celeron® D processors
■LGA775 socket
■1066/800/533 MHz system bus

You can see that it doesn't even list that it will support a Core2Duo, and yet that is what is running on it right now, what it came with actually. What I would like to know is, will it support a better Core2Duo, or possible a Core2Quad?

Nevermind, did more research and found out it can only support up to a Core2Duo E6700. Not worth an upgrade from an E4400.
