Hi,

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.
Thanks!

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