    Hi Everyone. I was thinking of upgrading my processor and was wondering how to tell if my motherboard would support it. My MB is a gigabyte K8 Triton right now using an AMD Athlon 64 2800 processor. Im looking to upgrade it using a Dual Core processor, but not sure if my board would support this. Not to knowledgeable when it comes to hardware, so im searching for advice.

    Thank You

    Go here, http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Default.aspx , and choose your motherboard, make sure you get the revision correct, there will be a CPU support list telling you what processors your motherboard supports. It will also tell you what updated BIOS version adds support for different processors.
