Will this motherboard support a dual core CPU? Answered

I'm helping my friend do some upgrades on his computer, it's a Compaq Presario SR2034NX desktop. I'm wondering if it will support a dual core processor or not. According to HP, it doesn't, but looking around on the internet, I've seen quite a few people have upgraded to dual cores. However, there's some minor differences with this particular motherboard. It seems that there are actually two different types of motherboards with the same model number from Asus (A8M2N-LA). On the HP site they have different HP model numbers (a more advanced board - the NodusM3-GL8E, and the one I have - the Naos-GL6; both with the same A8M2N-LA number for Asus) It appears that the NodusM3-GL8E supports all sorts of fun things like 8 GiB of DDR2 800 RAM and dual cores up the wazoo. However, the Naos-GL6 looks like a stripped down version of the NodusM3-GL8E (two less RAM sockets, etc.), so it might not support a dual core. I'd like to know before purchasing, since Newegg won't accept processor returns for a refund. Also, 800 Mhz RAM would be nice to have, HP says it only supports 667 Mhz RAM but other people have put 800 Mhz in with no issues. Does anyone know if my friend's mobo will support a dual core and 800 Mhz RAM?

I built a Super (ly fast) Computer, we named it HAL.

I am glad to announce, we have built a super computer. I'm serious, 8gb DDR2 ram, AMD Phenom 9600 Quad Core,500gb SATA hard drive, Dual ATI Radeon 4670 DDR3 512mb Graphics cards, Asus M3N78-VM AM2+ Motherboard. It's so fast, if i was chatting on yahoo, i can see what you are typing before you type it. If ANYONE takes this picture, i will know because the chances of someone with this same set up is pretty slim. Or at least give me credit and let me know.http://www.computersonics.com/Pictures, Well, now!
