    hi , i was wondering if the Q8200 and the Q6600 would use the same motherboard !?

    they are both LGA 775 socket ... is it possible they dont use same motherboard ???

    my uncle had a q6600 on a p5k-e asus mobo .. the mobo fried ... the guy at the pc shop told him he cant find some mobo for that q6600 anymore ...

    so he told my uncle he had a Q8200 and a intel mobo still in store he would sell him ...

    why spend money for a cpu + motherboard when he could buy just that mobo instead ??

    im pretty sure they use same mobo right !????

    If it supports the Q8200, a later CPU, it'll support a Q6600. :D
