The Q6600 is a monster chip (I have one), and I've never seen a socket 775 cpu not work, in a socket 775 motherboard, so I'd have an educated guess to say that yes, it would work.

However, the Q6600 can handle 3.6GHz with ease, and this motherboard seems quite low-spec for this class of component. I'd consider a new ASUS board, with a nice built in wifi connecting, PCI Express 2.0 support also.

You could then overclock to your hearts content then.

Intel Core 2 Quad 8200 with a 945GCT-M3? Will it work?

Hello here is the homepage:

Here you can see the supported cpu list.

The quad core cpu will not run on this mainboard.

Here is info about the quad cpu:

But you can add a Intel Core 2 Extreme LGA775
This should give a noteable difference compares to the old single core cpu.

Remember also to buy a bigger cpu cooling element.

Here is no upgrade for the bios.

Good luck

Intel core 2 Quad Q6600 compatible with ECS P4M800PRO-M2 

According to their website, no. The core 2 duo is supported, but not quad core.
Look under the cpu tab.

E8400 or Q6600

personally i have the q6600 which is a quad core processor, all the others you listed were dual core, personally i use alot of programs all at once which is good if you have a quad core, but just for general music, data, and streaming, the e8400 is probably better for you, its a 3ghz processor.
