A quick question

I have an ASUS P5AD2 Premium Mobo.  I want to know whether I can upgradeto one of the new Core 2 Duo E6700 or E6800 Conroe processors but note that the sales pitch states:

"Only compatible with new Intel 965 and 975X socket 775 Motherboards (Older 975 boards are not compatible)"

Does this mean that these new CPUs are incompatible with this particular motherboard?  I can't seem to find reference to 965 or 975X in the ASUS manual.

Thanks!

i believe you need a 945 chipset at least, and yours has only a 925 chipset.
so i don't think it supports dual core
