I would imagine that a machine that supports the Core2Duo chip would support the new quad-cores, especially if the processor socket remains the same.

The dc7700 SFF uses the Intel Q965 Express chipset, which according to this chart from Intel, does support the Intel Core2 Quad Processor Q6600:
I'm not sure if HP officially supports this processor on the platform or not. I'm not sure if there are power differences that may inhibit it from working on the dc7700 SFF. Also, the BIOS may not include the appropriate microcode patch for this model.
Hope this helps,
I am an HP Employee.

Since everyone else is speculating I will add some more speculation. Just because the Intel chipset supports quad core processors does not mean that the HP motherboard design has implemented everything to support all that the chipset will.
Hope this helps.

Quad cores have been out a while.
I would think a workstation brand of HP would be a better fit for the quad cores. The DC7xxx series is for basic end-user needs.
