Okay, so I have been using PC part picker for quite a long time but I finally ran into an issue I need some peer help with.
So, as a new father I haven't had time or money to build my own personal PC like I used to do in high school, as a matter of fact I'm on the last pc I built in high school as we speak, a P4 HT with an 80gb hdd, 4gb ddr2 1088 ram and 512mb 300mhz gpu, ohhhhhh! Impressive! Anyway we have been given a pc with a Intel D945GCZ mobo that has a lga775 socket, however the intel site says the core 2 quad is not supported despite it using the same socket. So my question, if I can grab a cheap core 2 quad on ebay or craigslist can I make it work on this mobo, I would be better off buying that and getting an amd7700 (considering this mobo has a pci x16) then building a new computer right now, I would prob only end up spending around $200 amirite?
If any of my data seems a little off I'm sorry, I have been out of the pc building game for awhile now and normally just do minor repairs and upgrades for friends, but I think its about time I got back to my favorite hobby!
