My CPU usage hits 100% just like that. Many a times I see it's hovering over 80% or 90%. Now I dropped the idea of upgrading to latest processors, thinking of Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad processors.
Checked ebay and could find about a handful of processors (LGA 775) under 1k.
Going by motherboard support list (ASUS site) C2D E6600 is the highest I can go. But third party site suggests I can go upto E8600 / Q6600.

How I can confirm that E8600 / Q6600 is compatible with my motherboard P5G MX?

Is this wise to upgrade to one of these processor now (idea of keeping it for another year or two)?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
