need new CPU for asus P5wd2-e Premium

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1...81&modelmenu=1 is my motherboard,

from what I've been reading mostly seems the best thing I could put in it would be a 965 XE but that would be rather expensive for the fact I want to just keep it alive,

I am having trouble finding any pentium D 920 or 940's I can buy new,

I have also read suggestion that the 'Pentium D E2200' might work on the board, althought I'm not sure

If anyone with experience with this could help that would be great, it's very frustrating having an awesome board which you can't drop a decent CPU into,

Cheers

Go to the Asus website, Spport section.

Under FAQ/Technical Documents there is a section on CPU support. That will tell you exactly what CPUs are supported and what BIOS version you will need.
