    I recently put a new motherboard in my pc, previously had an xps 710 but now have the xps 720 motherboard. My current processor is a core 2 duo E6600 2.4 ghz 1066 mhz fsb. I'm looking to buy a new and faster processor, i'm currently looking at buying a core 2 duo
    E6850 3.0 ghz 1333 mhz fsb. My question is will my motherboard (my new 720 mobo) be capable of running a processor with a 1333 mhz fsb?

    Hmm...why not overclock and save yourself a good chunk of money? Unless going from a Pentium to a C2D, I don't think it's worth the money for a couple extra MHz. Besides, Intels are easy to OC!
