|HP Compaq dc7800 Convertible Minitower PC|
And i am upgrading the processor to E8500 and or a Q9300
For gaming Q9300 will have the advantage.
DDR2 1066 is not supported plus most of them are factory overclocked which use high voltage(2.0 - 2.2v).
For core architecture CPU's(c2d, c2q etc) it is recommended to use ratio 1:1 or 1:2, for 1333 FSB CPU u will need DDR2 667(ratio 1:1) or DDR 1333(ratio 1:2).
Most OEM BIOS don't allow to under-clock the memory clock so it is better to get DDR2 667 and not DDR2 800.
