Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 Yorkfield 2.66GHz 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor BX80580Q8400

Otherwise I would need DDR3 memory, a new mobo, probably a new case, and now a re install of Windows 7?
This board will handle that quad and run DDR2 RAM. I am using a mATX version of it in my mother-in-law's computer, and have an AM3 in it as well.

Newegg.com - ASRock A770DE+ AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard
