Here's how it works.

1. Find out what socket your processor requires.

2. Find out what socket a motherboard supplies.

If the two are not the same then you can't use that processor with that motherboard. If they are the same then you may be able to use the two together, but you should check the manufacturer's specifications to see which processors your mother board supports.

So, no, you can't use an i3, which requires a socket other than LGA 775 (depends on the particular model), with that motherboard, which has a LGA 775 socket.

The rest of the research is up to you.

I saw your other post first. Do not double post on the same question, stick to one thread and add a 'reply' of your own.
Here is what I wrote, STICK TO THIS THREAD PLEASE:

"Your question is vague, not complete, does not tell us what you have and exactly what you want. It also only eludes to the apparent fact that you may not have the experience to be able to do this.
If you just want to build a computer but have not been active in repairing, maintaining and upgrading a previous computer then this project is probably not one you should tackle without an experienced friend to help you out (standing next to you).
If you already have components and need specific help on a particular assembly, you need to list the components AND your particular experience and what specifically it is you do not understand.
If you have purchased some components and want advice on some others then include all you have purchased (exact make and model), your specific uses for the machine, and your approximate price range for the components and the entire project.
Also include the country you are in so we will not bother including a selling site (for components) in the US say that does not export beyond North America.
Know that there are currently 2 generations of i3 processors and a third coming out later this year which use two different motherboard sockets/chipsets (so far) and some compatibility with the third (same socket, new chipset but some backward compatibility) so you have to be specific."

NOW some more information is apparent, but I thought everyone should see this reply also in one place... SEE REPLY #1....

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

The 1st thing you need to do is decide which Core i3 you want - I'm guessing a Sandy Bridge? How much are you willing to spend for a motherboard? You'll need to look for socket 1155 boards, decide which chipset you want, & you'll need to decide whether you want ATX or microATX. How many memory slots - 2 or 4? We can't make these decisions for you.
