CPU Up Grade


Dear All, I have a Core 2 duo processor E4500 which is 2.2 GHz and 800 FSB , on an Intel 945 GCNL mother board with single Transcend 2GB DDR2 RAM. I have also installed a Graphic card Nvidia GT 210 and the OS is Windows 8 pro. I wanted to have an up grade without having to change the mother board which has the old 775 CPU socket. Shall I go for the E7500 processor which available cheap second hand or a compatible AMD processor. Please help.

1. AMD processors are not compatible with 775 socket.
2. Check your motherboard compatibility list before you decide on a processor.

Re: CPU Up Grade

Hi Trump many thanks for the info. All along I though AMD is pin to pin compatible with INTEL. Now you have given me a direction to go. Many thanks again.

Re: CPU Up Grade

Intel E7500 (2.93 GHz, 3 MB L2 Cache) will be a significant upgrade over E4500 (2.2 GHz, 2 MB L2 Cache), so you've got that covered. As already pointed, Intel and AMD processors use different sockets and pins so they are in no way compatible.

A good investment for you will be to try and find something like a Q6600 or Q8400. They are Core 2 Quad processors with 4 cores so you will get better performance.

Re: CPU Up Grade

agrees with @ChironX
the 775 is a really old socket
if you are gettin a e7500 its not too bad
have you thot of maybe sellin the MB+ram+cpu and assemblin something totally new
all boils down to what you are plannin to use the current rig for
