Those would still be slow by today's standards, but roughly 2.5x faster than what you have now. If you are really going to build a computer to run that very expensive software, I would do it right and upgrade the motherboard to socket 1155 and get at least an i3 if not an i5. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Is A socket LGA775 Motherboard compatible with a IntelCore2 Quad q6600> Related ressources: ForumOld CPU upgrade - Intel LGA775 socket ForumCPU upgrade for LGA775 motherboard ForumLooking for recomended Motherboard for Quad core Q6600 775 socket ForumWill LGA 1156 Socket support Interl Core 2 Quad Q6600 ForumDual Socket LGA775 Motherboards??
