Hi all just wondering if anyone has heard of compatibility problems with Intel core Duo E6700 processor and vista, just had a look at Dell's site and when you configure a system using that processor it states a compatibility problem click here I hope not as I have ordered a system from pcspecialist which should be with me by the weekend. Thanks

I have a Mesh PC and I have just checked their site and they don't appear to even list the DUO E6700 processor as an option.

Yes I looked there too, I am unable to find anymore help on this I have also had a look on the Intel website and nothing is flaged up.

If you choose it with Vista Ultimate then the compatibility problem isn't raised. Maybe it's something to do with the Viiv feature?

I am sill delving into this it all seems a little strange I did try VISTA ultimate on dells site but it still came up the same. I am hoping someone in this forum will have one running. (I had never heard of Viiv untill i went on Dells site) thanks

I had the same problem when using Dells custom build service and ended up buying from PCW,i would guess its a Dell motherboard issue.
