I did a search for compaq x6000 and socket and one of the websites claimed the x6000 had a 915P Express mobo which was indeed the LGA775 socket. YMMV but I hope it helps.

In general, Intel based motherboards are "simple" since they like to have all of their processors fit in the same socket. Anything from Pentium D to Core Extreme Quad fits in LGA 775.

AMD motherboards change every few hours. ;)

And without a flamewar, I actually prefer AMD's socket rotation BETTER simply because any CPU will work with any motherboard of the same socket but on Intel you need to compare a few other specs. Computers 101 says when you break compatibility, you should change the major version number. :D I love the LGA775 heatsinks though, simple snap-snap and you're done and the twist to release is pretty neat. :D
