Oh boy, you're in the same boat i'm in with my dad's HP asus based OEM board. You're max choice in a regular core 2 duo is the E6700 @ 2.66ghz with a 1066 FSB (Front side bus). Reason being is likely identical to my situation. The board likely only supports a "conroe" core. It can't handle the "WOLFDALE", otherwise they would list higher ghz for an E6700. The E6700 is also available as a 3.2ghz with 1066mhz FSB, but its based on 45nm process, which requires different power regulation from the board. if you were to put in the wrong chip, you get nada. Not even POST errors from what i've read where others have tried and failed.
Unfortunately, E6700 @ 2.66ghz are a little rare, but they are on ebay for about 80-100 bucks, and various other places. Search for "E6700", but be careful to avoid the 3.2ghz's.
The only other choice for max is the Core 2 Extreme X6800 @ 2.93 ghz. This processor looks like its about double the cost to the E6700 though. That's a lot of extra money to get only .27 gain in ghz though, IMO, though there could be other reasons to go extreme, like availability. There might be more of them! The same logic applies here. Stay with the 65nm process, and 1066 FSB.

Here is the tech spec page for your board. Its shows all the supported processors: http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=fLSzpcTDJYT0rgS6&content=specifications
You might want to choose carefully on whether to upgrade this board's CPU. Might be time to scrap the whole board and get something with more FSB capabilities.
Good luck!

I carnt work out what size chip to put on the p5s-mx se Socket LGA775 motherboard


Ok no problem I can help you there. First you want Intel or AMD. I would take Intel. Then you want Core Duo or Core 2 Duo, I'd take Intel Core 2 Duo, then you need to find out the Frontside Bus Speed of your motherboard, it has to match the CPU. So let's say its 1,066MHz. And you want something faster than 1.8 so go with 2.4GHz. So now we looking for a Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.4GHz, 1066MHz bus speed with stock cooler. So then go to www.intel.com, in their search box type "Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz" and it will bring up all the CPU's and their prices..if you have any questions let me know. Pls rate this solution.
