Hi abs4nz,

Thanks for updating the system specs in the field. While I look for the information can you also let us know model number of the system so we can check the list of processors tested with this system.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

Hi, im guaranteed the t770 chip will work. so purchased through local auction website with a money back option. will let you know if it works. definitely replaceable as ive looked at some you tube vids and it looks exactly the same inside the system. do you know if the board and bios will support the chips 800mhz fsb as the ram in me system is only 667mhz and would it produce noticeable results upgrading to 800mz ram if its supported? whats your opinion on the samsung 840 pro series 128gb ssd? would it be installable on my sys as ive read this will make a huge difference in speeding up my sys? Thanks.
