You'd have to get a new GPU and PSU to game as well.

I'm not sure if it's work. Don't know much about the Core 2-series.

LGA 775 only supports up to the Core 2 Quad CPU's.

But it depends on the mobo too. Make sure it supports the Q8300.

I had a Dell Optiplex 745 for a awhile
the ONLY Core2 Quad that will work is a Q6600 2.4ghz 1066mhz FSB
no other C2Q will work
I have a Youtube channel "Gaming on a Budget" where I talk alot about the Optiplex 745
BTW I am work as a PC Tech
