On hp.com it appears that i can choose the Pentium Dual-CoreE5300 [2.6GHz], Core 2 Duo E7500 [2.93GHz] , and Core 2 Quad Q8200 [2.33GHz].
My first question is, if I buy 2 computers, 1 with the E5300 and another with the Q8200 will they both come with the same mother board?
Second question is, do we have a list of supported CPU's for this computer? I looked around and didn't find anything. I am wondering if this can handle the Q8200, then can it handle the Q6400, Q6600, Q6700, Q6800?

For some comparison information on those CPUs
Choose a bench mark (or more then one), then select your CPU options.
This is not a recommendation nor am I suggesting that this information is accurate. "I hear" Tom's Hardware is held in high regard.
If your CPU's not on this list? Then try here:

The link at:
...shows that the "Core 2 Quad Q9400 (Y) (2.66GHz /1333 MHz) 6 MB L2 cache; Quad Core (65W)" is supported on this PC. However, it lists the CPU as "65W". Everywhere I look, the CPU is acutally "95W". Does this mean that I can pick any Socket 775 CPU in the Core 2 Quad line, even if it is "95W"?
EDIT: To note that the replacement part for the Q9400, NP339-69001, is described as 95W...maybe all Socket 775 CPU in the Core 2 Quad's are supported?.
