Does your motherboard support 800MHz FSB CPUs? Nope:

Ok i see.
So this 3.06 GHz processor with a 533 Front side bus would work?

One of the more 'P4 savy' guys should be able to tell you if the 3.06GHz laptop CPU will work in a desktop motherboard.

Yeh, I'm pretty sure I'm going to just get a 2.8GHz P4 and overclock it later.
Thank you so much for your help!
