    Arrow Intel Core 2 Quad 9300 or greater

    I'm stuck with an Intel Core 2 8300 Quad which is not capable of WinXP Legacy due to the lack of VT support so I'm looking for anyone who may be thinking of upgrading to i7 or just upgrading that has a suitable CPU (in good condition obviously).

    Already got an decent motherboard so I don't need a combo but if anyone has any offers let me know...

    EDIT: This link has a list of the compatible models ..
    http://www.zdnet.com/blog/bott/how-m...ows-7/946?pg=2

    So I'm looking at:
    Q9300/9400/9400S
    Q9450/9550/9550S/9650

    ... not looking to downgrade speed either as I've gotten used to this system speed as is.

    I'm guessing the list on my link is out of date or marginally incorrect?
