im trying to install a intel q8300 processor into a sabertooth z77 motherboard but it doesn't seem to fit properly. Is this normal? Do I need a more up to date processor?

Because a Q8300 is a LGA 775 and the Sabretooth is a LGA 1155 board. You will need to upgrade your CPU

if the q prossor is new i rma back and hope they dont charge you a restocking fee. right now there g version of i3 sb at micro center that not bad price and will be faster then the q chip. if you can wait till sept there going to be newer ib chips from intel. low end i5/i3.
