Will the DG45FC motherboard accept an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 CPU? I am currently running an E5200 CPU in my HTPC and was thinking of upgrading for a little better performance. Any thoughts appreciated.

The answer is Yes you can use which ever CPU you would like.

Seams like performance wise this is the difference

Thank you sir. Doesn't appear to be that much of a performance gain. Thanks for taking the time to post.
