So I've decided I wanna replace my current processor, an old Core 2 Duo E6850, and I was wondering if anyone could help me with this. From what I've gathered, replacing the processor is easy enough, wear anti-static equipment, take out old heatsink, replace processor, replace heatsink, assure cooling works properly, etc, but my concern is the motherboard. This is the processor I have my sights on, an i7 920, but what I don't know is if my Motherboard or chipset will accept it. CPU-Z says this: So, I'm not really that knowledgeable about this, should I be able to upgrade my processor? Also, if you recommend another processor, preferably Intel, do tell. Thanks.
