What's the best CPU that I could put on my DG965MS Motherboard. I have a Pentium D at the moment but I was thinking of upgrading to a newer CPU.

Thanks.

Re: DG965MS Motherboard

Where is says "Compatibility details differ per processor revision" how can I check exactly which version I should get? Ideally I would get a E6700 but it does say that.

Thanks

Re: DG965MS Motherboard

Look on the Mobo number for a tag that has "AA". The numbers following AA will be the board's revision number.
E6700 needs revision 402-403-404-405-406
Bios version 1698 or above.

Re: DG965MS Motherboard

Intel site says any revision from 402 to 406 so you should be good.
If your Bios version 1698 or above you should be good to go.
