Cool Asus P5PE-VM

Hi my computer is very old and i would like to upgrade to dual-core, without having to buy allnew parts, andd i found this board: the asus p5pe-vm

and it says that it suppports the core2duo. is this really true? if it is then thats amazing because ive nevr seen a core2duo board that supports ddr400 and AGP!

i also have proof that it supports core2duo and its not a typo - http://www.phoronix.com/forums/archi...php/t-992.html

my question is what is the max processor that i can put on it? (example- e6300? e4300?)

this is a relly amazing discovery for me as i thought i hadd no hope

my proccessor makes my games relly slow and its sad becuzz my card is sopposed 2 be fast - so i think this will make a huge difference, am i rite?

i am on a relly tite budget rite now
my current system specs are b-low.

Well it supports C2D's but if u have a C2D and an AGP-GPU then its making a huge bottleneck.
Their is no "MAX" for any motherboard because of OCing it just depends if the hard ware con handle it.
For you I would go for a e6600 cuz its pretty much the standard now for Intel Computers.
But don't get a CPU with a FSB of 1333Mhz cuz i don't think you will be OCing your FSB or CPU.
Order it from newegg best prices anywhere.
Newegg.com

ok i really wouldnt get that motherboard. seein as it only supports DDR RAM which means you CPU will completely bottleneck your RAM i know you dont wonna buy new RAM yet but u will in the long run.

this my friend is the board you want.

http://www.eclipsecomputers.com/prod...775DVSTA&af=50

lemme give u a few reasons why.

supports Core2Duo.
Supports DDR
Supports DDR2
Supports AGP
Supports PCI-E

what more could you want from a motherboard.


that website doesnt tell u it can support C2D but this 1 does.
http://www.anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.aspx?i=2797&p=10

i def think you want that 1 because its a board you can upgrade slowly to

There is no point at this point to buy one that does that. You are limiting yourself, and it'll be awfully slow by the sounds of things.
Yo'd be best off doing a rather cheap upgrade to both PCI-E and DDR2 RAM.
