If your Dell motherboard works fine for you, then there's not really a reason to replace it. But you likely can't overclock your Duo with it, and, like you said, its when these chips are overclocked that they really shine and are able (barely) to keep up with today's tech.

Check around locally and you should be able to find a better deal on those high-end 775 motherboards. The online sellers generally know how much they're worth and try to ask top dollar. I found my Quad and P5Q3 Deluxe on Craigslist for a great deal.

+1 If you're not going to do an overclocking or gaming, it's really pointless to buy a new board. As a 775 board user I can tell you even a Q6600 at 3,8GHz(It will overheat at 4GHz with my bad cooler) can't really keep in some games because my GPU load isn't at 99 percent. The problem is also my monitor which is 19 inch but I'm getting a 22-24 inch monitor/TV and I can tell you then how it is. I see jetpak12 owns the same board as I do but he's running with a way better CPU, you can ask him. If you are just surfing in the internet, watching movies and video clips and stuff, that board will be fine for you IMO but if you plan on playing games, you should look at least at the old i7's. As far as I remember a QX9770 is equal to an i7 920, both stock but it's much more expensive I think. Anyway I don't have any problems playing games when my GPU load is at 99 percent, I own a GTX 470 (800Mhz Core/1800Mhz Memory). Btw ASUS Maximus Formula is also DDR2, apologies biggrin.gif

Overclocking is why I like my old 775 setups. They are second hand and little investment in to them so im not afraid to push them. I recently dissembled my gaming rig which ive used for probably 3 years.

Second hand is the same for my gpus and with my QX6850 stable clock at 3.6ghz on air ive played Battlefield BC2, BF3 and BF4. Started out with a HD 4870 to a 5770 then a 560ti and lastly a 3gb 7950. I clocked the 7950 @ 1050/1250 and played BF4 on high in 1680x1050 with no problem. But the 7950 is why im working on building a 1155 system to fully unleash the card.

Now I swapped in my QX6850 and Foxconn p45a board in to my htpc. I picked up a Cooler Master Gemini m4 cooler to fit the lower profile case but after start up I discovered my idle temps at 60 even after I returned the chip to stock speed. So I need to take it apart and check my Tim and maybe I'll have to use my Q6600 with the Gemini cooler as I've found it runs cooler anyways.

20140303_205606_zpsgszk5xwc.jpg

I removed my q6600 and asus p5e-v my htpc due to usb problems with my infinitv and external hd. So I put the combo in to another case that would fit a bigger cooler. Don't know the brand but it's a tall upright heat sink with a 120mm that kept my qx6850 cool. So far I've only got it stable at 3 ghz until the heat sink on my hd 4870 broke in half.

A ASUS Dark Knight Edition HD4870! I used to have one of those! One would overheat so I put an Artic Cooling Twin Turbo on it. Only thing I didn't like was that the fans plugged directly into the PSU, so you lost fan control. Its an option. Artic Cooling Silenco V2 is a passive heatsink that will fit too, but I wouldn't recommend it. 4870s run too hot.

The cooler on there is a Ximga S1283. Its pretty good. I used it on a AMD PII 965. Its pretty much just like Cooler Masters 212+, only I don't think it has a second fan option. I sold that rig, so I don't remember too much more about it.

Thanks for the info on the ximga and correct no second fan option.

As for the dark Knight ive saved it for a backup to mess with and Don't know what I'll do with it now. I have a bunch of older gpus to mess with.

Try to solder it back on?!! Blow torch and solder should do it. Worst thing that happens is that i does work and you break it more.

So I checked the tim on my QX6850 and it was a little light so I applied and my temps dropped from 60 to 55. Still no good with the Gemini m4 cooler. I yanked it out and put in my Q6600 with the Gemini M4 and at stock 2.4ghz im at 38-40c idle. better but not impressed. it fits my case but not much better than the stock cooler I had on my q6600 before.

You're welcome. The company is actually called Ximgatek..I was just going from what I remembered off the top of my head.
