The T7700 should be possible. Not sure about the E series though. The 965 is the newest chipset from Intel and the PM is the Performance chip set so I don't see the T7700 as being a problem.

thank you
I have been fighting with gateway all day.
the mobo is rate for a fsb of 800. Im worried if that will change on its own.
Meaning current fsb is 533 locked out
when I put in a new cpu will the fsb changed to match the cpu is is it locked at the 533. Gateway doesn't understand the question

I agree the e6850 is out since the mobo doesnt support fsb of 1333

mobo is made by Intel according to gateway

any help greatly appreciated

errrr...... that doesn't make much sense. The FSB of your CPU is 667 so that's what it should be reading as. You may want to question gateway as to why it's reading 533 in the first place when it shouldn't be.
