socket 755 or LGA 755 question
Posted on 2010-08-18
I currently have a Dell optiplex 755.
It says it currently sports a Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 @ 2.33 GHz.
I need to upgrade video cards to a dual monitor output. A friend gave me a GeForce 9800 GTX+ card that I plan to use. (Bare in mind, this is just a business machine).
So long story short. It will not fit in the small form factor case. I plan on getting a new motherboard and power supply and putting everything in a ATX case that I currently have.
My question is this. Dell says this processor is a LGA 755 socket. Is there a difference between a 755 and a LGA 755 or are they the same thing. I would like to get a motherboard that I can use my existing CPU and RAM in. Any suggestions?
