Hi and Thanks for viewing my post smile.gif

I have a Intel(r) Core (TM)2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz 2.67GHz and was wondering if it would make a good processor to build a HTPC around. I know it's kinda old but just 4 years ago I think it rocked.

If you think it's ok could you please recommend a MB. It's the older LGA775 socket processor but I think it should be fine, Just need some input.


Thanks again

Joe

There are lots of P45 chipset mb available at ebay. Personally I would sell Q9400 (~$100 at ebay) and build a new system (Celeron G1610 / A6-5400K or Core i3-3225 / A10-5800K), that's easier and better (better mb, excellent integrated graphics, lower power consumption).
