Hi,

i have the Asus P5GC-MX 1333 motherboard which supports intels core 2 duo processor, it has an intel 945GC northbridge chipset, and an ICH7 southbridge intel chip set, i want to install intels core 2 duo on the board, but this processor comes in 21 diffrent models.

I checked the specs on both the board and the processor and all seem to be compatible, the only diffrence i could find between the models was a slight alteration in the processor speed, FSB speed, and the L2 cache size.

My question is, would the P5GC-MX 1333 motherboard be compatible with all these processor models?? or am i limited to just a few?? or is it simply just a choice of choosing my own model for the speed thats right for me???

These are the diffrent models for the intel core 2 duo.
