Yes this might be a dumb question but i remember way back in 3rd grade, the only dumb question is the one you don't ask so here it goes...<br />
<br />
I'm upgrading and thinking about the DS3 with a new Core Duo. But i currently have a P4 3.4 and i noticed that the DS3 may support my current chip which is attractive to me but it only will support a P4 3.4 with 4 megs. So I tried SISoftware tool and can't find anything about the amount of L2 cache any help would be great. <br />
Thanks once agian!

Is your P4 a socket 478 or 775 (does it have gold pins or gold contacts)?<br />
The DS3 is only for socket 775 CPUs, even ones with 2MB L2 cache.<br />
<br />
Edit: Here's the DS3 <a href="http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/CPUSupport_Model.aspx?ClassValue=Motherboard&ProductID=2314&ProductName=GA-965P-DS3" target="_blank">CPU support list</a>.

</div>It's most likely a socket 775 CPU if you pulled it out of a Dell 4700. <br />
So, I'm pretty sure the CPU you pulled out is compatible with the DS3.
