Re: core 2 duo capable?
It's probably best to get the specs of the motherboard. FInd out the make and model. Get a software utility like Sandra, Everest, Hwinfo or some other type that will tell you the name of the motherboard and hopefully what model they are. Even CPU-Z can tell you info in regards to your mainboard.
Then once you get the info on that, you can proceed to their website to look up the full specs of it. It will eventually tell you what CPU it can support.
