These 2 CPUs have different sockets, so you can't do this upgrade without changing your motherboard

Funny thing is: Due to the inherent speed advantage Intel has, this "upgrade" would be a slowdown actually Tongue2

But yeah, change to a faster core2 duo OR read up on overclocking the chip you have.
I think yours should be able to run at some 3.3 or so Ghz?

I agree, if upgrading, just switch the CPU for a C2D E7x00. The Gigabyte P35-DS3L is a pretty nice overclocking board. Do both? Laugh
