I have this computer i screw around with upgrade here and there for gaming and just informational usage.

I have a Gigabyte motherboard GA-965P-DS3. I've looked into my motherboard and I see it can handle the Intel Core2 Extreme Quad Core processer. Does this mean it can also handle the Intel i7 Quad Core 950?

The Intel Core2 Extreme Quad Core retails for like $1,800 dollars before tax I don't have that kind of money.

Thanks for your help. - Boss
