Question about Intel CELERON 2.66Ghz CPU AND MOTHER BOARD (CPU4266CEL) Motherboard
Ok i have a Foxconn 661 7mi motherboard and i want to upgrade my proccesor to a dual core. my current proccesor is a P4 3.2gh. my reason for upgrading is i wanted to purchase a radeon hd 3850 and most everybody has told me that the card will be bottlenecked by the CPU.
My question is will my motherboard be compatible with a dual core proccesor
If by P4 you mean, "Pentium 4" then your motherboard probably has a Processor Socket 478. The majority of dual-core processors I know of use the LGA-775 or AM2 sockets. So unless you can find a dual core that fits a socket 478 you're out of luck.
Sorry mate, looks like you're going to have to upgrade a lot more than you thought. If you think you can build it yourself you can find the parts cheap here.
All the best.
