Naturally, this CPU uses LGA775 and it will work in all the motherboards that can cope with 45 nanometer Penryn-based processors.

The current sweet spot is the Q6600 quad core that works at 2.4GHz and sells for $270 in the U.S. and between €220 and €230 in Euroland. This baby has 8MB of total cache memory, while the new one has SSE4 and more cache.
