Hello,
I would like to upgrade the processor in my Gateway DX4710-UB002A to an Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 2.66 GHz processor.
Does anyine know if this CPU is compatible or is there another recommended 2.66 GHz CPU?

I'm just trying to meet the recommended requirements for some video editing software I plan on purchasing.

What I need is an educated answer to my original inquiry. Will the CPU I mentioned work well with the Gateway DX4710-UB002A or is there another CPU that would be better suited to my particular PC?

Mousemonkey, do you know the answer?

I have maxed out the memory and almost 2 GB of hard drive space installed running on Vista. Thanks.

This where I start to get stumped. Here is the information I found on the Q6600:

CPU Socket Type LGA 775
Core Kentsfield
FSB 1066MHz
L1 Cache 128KB+128KB
L2 Cache 2 x 4MB
Manufacturing Tech 65 nm
64 bit Support - Yes
Hyper-Threading Support - No
Virtualization Technology Support - Yes
Multimedia Instruction MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3,SSSE3, EM64T
Voltage 0.85V – 1.5V

Hope this gives you what you're asking for.

Hopefully I'm not oversimplifying this, but is it best to go from a 65nm Quad core to another 65nm Quad core? Is it better to move up than down?
