Currently I have an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor which uses the LGA 775 socket. I am thinking about upgrading to something in the future... but will any 775 socket processer be compatable or are there other factors to consider? I apologize if this question has been asked before. Thanks

It is up to the PC or motherboard manufacturer what 775 processors are compatible, sometimes they have bios updates to accommodate newer processors.

Make and model of PC?

PC is an HP Pavilion Media Center m8430f. Here are the mobo specs, it has processors listed on there but I am not sure if that list is old and if there are newer ones out that would be compatable or not, Im pretty ignorant when it comes to hardware I usually stick with the software side of things.

Its going to be hard if not impossible to determine what is compatible beyond that list and what, if any were added via a bios update from HP.
