Re: upgrade from single core processor to duo core
You cannot upgrade to a dual core processor using this motherboard as this motherboard is a socket 478 (older version) instead of LGA775. If you want to upgrade to a dual core processor, you will have to get a new Mobo as well.

Hi, your motherboard supports several different kinds of processors. You have a choice of two for the fastest performance. You could go with an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor #E6700 that runs at 2.66 Ghz with a front side bus of 1066 Mhz and 4 Mb L2 cache, or you could go with an Intel Single Core Processor #670 that runs at 3.80 Ghz with an 800 Mhz front side bus and 2Mb L2 cache. The Core 2 would outperform the Single Core, but it is more expensive. Hope this helps! Hal
The pentium d 915 is a dual core processor, albeit a bad one. You should check google for info on your motherboard to see if it supports Core 2 duo's/ Core 2 quads. I have an E6600 overclocked to 3.0ghz and it still plays games perfectly paired with my 8800gt 512mb and 4gb's ram. I definately recommend upgrading to a core 2 duo. I used to have a pentium d 915 and it was bad for gaming and the e6600 blows it out of the water. You most likely wont find the e6600 anywhere as it is nearly 3 years old. Look at sites such as toms hardware to find a good core 2 duo.
