    Can I run a Q9650 on a DG965WH motherboard?

      Guess the title says it all!

       

      I have a DG965WH with an E660 processor. I recently upgraded to 8 gig of 800 MHz ram (I can't tell if motherboard is running it at that speed or not, though.. intel specs says the motherboard will only support 4 gig of 800 Mhz chips).

       

      Anyway, I need to do a lot of number crunching and my local shop has a Q9650 for $250.00 (no fan) and I want to make sure it will work with this motherboard and that it won't be unduly "slowed down" by the chipset on the motherboard.

       

      Thanks for any info!
