    Did a little looking around on Google.... Appears you have a board from a Gateway computer. That's probably why you couldn't find it on Inte's web site. By computer standards the 915 boards are old.

    You can not run a dual core CPU.

    I would say now, AFAIK the 975 Chipset, and even like revision 3 was the first Intel chipset to run dual core - not 100% sure on that though.

    AFAIK "as far as he knows the 975 chipset was the first to run dual core cpu's"

    Sorry, you need a new motherboard to run a dual core processor.

    Yeah, implying to the best of my knowledge the 915x wouldn't run it ;)
