Often enough the mtrbd. maker supplies that info. You review the listing for cpu supported and go from there. Understand, sometimes, its best to have the latest bios update in order to support the full range of cpus listed and/or anything that offers to keep the mtrbd. up to date.

hi,

you can check the motherboard manufacturer and model. they usually have a cpu support list on their website.

can you check inside the case on the motherboard?

e.g. ASUS P4V8X-MX.

I am thinking of new build instead of cpu upgrade.

Even the best cpu for this upgrade is not going to do much improvement. If you are thinking of big improvement then new built is the way to go.
