|Is this a retail motherboard from Gigabyte? Or is it an OEM motherboard made by Gigabyte for Dell, HP, etc?|
Here's the Gigabyte board specs: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pr...
Notice the processor info at the top, especially what's written in red. The detailed CPU Support List can be found here:
It's an old board based on an even older chipset (approx 2005). Make sure you have the latest BIOS before swapping the CPU. I recommend the F7B Beta BIOS because it adds 6-core CPU support.
What exactly are you hoping to accomplish?
