Bad news, only pentium 4 and pentium d are supported. If u want to use e5400(which is better than p4 and pentium d) u better buy new motherboard(not intel mobo).

then why does my computer guy assume the the chip they carry the e5300 will work i mean the chip i got now is the 800mhz fsb and so is the the one i want the e5400 not 1200 or whatever some of the new ones are. If i cant upgrade to the e5400 like u say then what can i use that will give me the most improvement ive herd some pentuim d are just as good peformance wise as qaud cores and that most of the time the extra workers are idle with qauds so should i steer clear of qauds for another 2 years and get what i can into my old board idk why but the pentuim d seems more money then the e5400 and its older no???

I remember the battle between pentium d and athlon 64 x2 later athlon x2 and pentium was terrible.Your computer guy assume but i check intel website and they said only pentium 4 and pentium d up to 800fsb. What cpu do u have? U can't compare pentium d and core 2 quad, pentium d are based on old p4 architecture so the perform bad as p4 cpu. For $70 u could get good board that support up to c2q cpu and use your pentium e5400(i assume u have ddr2 memory) and i don't recommend to buy pentium d.

Kuwese is right. Here is what cpu's your motherboard can support.

http://www.intel.com/support/mother...

He prob assumed that you are talking about the Pentuim D 8xx/9xxx series which was based on the Pentuim 4 series and not the Pentuim D E-series which is based on the Core 2 Duo series.

A lot of people have made that mistake and that's basicly due to Intel's numbering confusion with the way they label their processors now of days. The LGA 775 platform was a clutterd mess when it came to cpu compatibility, It can be a headache trying to figure out what cpu is compatible with what chipsets especially when you get to the Intel LGA 775 945/975x chipset which was basicly a crossroads chipset between the Core 2 Duo and the old Pentuim D where you would have some LGA 945/975x motherboards that were capable of running Core 2 Duo's while other LGA 945/975x motherboards that weren't capable of running Core 2 Duo's.

No the guy said that based on what i told him i have a lga775 spcket motherboard so he assumed his chip would work they prolly would have posted it themselves to see if it would take it but yeah i have pc3200 2g ddr2 what could i get for cheap a mobo that will take a qaud like u say and i wont have to put one in right away i could just use my cheap say e5400 or something else cheap for now what would u suggest? i have video hd and dvd burner and ram so all i really need is a board n chip that will fit in my case its a w series emachines case which i assume is atx would i be able to use that or will i need a case? Also i asked the guy about my power supply a few months back the one im using is a 400 watt codgen i picked up with a turbo fan now i also have this other power supply @-power which is a 430 watt psu . I picked up a newer video card so i realized i dont have enough power i need a 450w psu for this gfx card. Now i told him i wanted to use the 430 instead he said it wouldent work because of the pins and no improvement the one im using now has 4 more pins i guess and so it gives more power to the board. Well little does that guy know i had already swapped the original psu last yearit was like a 365w and guess what it dident have extra pins dident seem to require any and also nothing was plugged into the 4 pin connector on the board i noticed that on a reg pentuim 478 it had the 4 pin plugged in so i figured because my original chip was a p4 celeron d it dident need it must be for reg p4 ht chips. so with that bieng said what does the stand alone 4 pin connector on the motherboard do anyway and and would installing this 430w psu help my video card not to strain as much n freeze as easy i mean its just laying around for free?

We need to know the name of your video card. How much amps are in +3.3v,+5v,+12v open pc case and check the psu label. the pins is for sup plying power to cpu and chipset. pentium e5400 is a good cpu but to take advantage(overclock) u need a least ddr2 533(1066fsb),ddr2 667(1333fsb),ddr2 800(1600fsb). And 4 the motherboard look for good review board with intel chipset(g45,p45,p43,p35) *don't* buy intel motherboard.

Well that was his problem. the guy should have not assumed it would work because it's an LGA 775 motherboard, he should have asked what the model of the chipset was first, before assmuing. Like I said before the LGA 775 platform is a extensive platform that dates back all the way to the Pentium 4 era.

i have a geforce 9800 gt oc 1gb and my current psu puts out 10 amps current 3.3a orange 5a red 12 yellow.30a orange 40a red and 14a yellow if that helps i mean i dont forsee the 430 watt psu being any better but heres the 430w specs current 10a/6a orange 0.3a red 0.8a yellow 2a. then says 3.3v/28a which ill assume is the orange color +5/40a red +12v/17a yellow hope this helps. It seems like im using the wrong psu even with a turbo fan doesnt matter i need more power not more air lol
