Can i use a Pentium D or Duo Core in a ASUS P5GDC-V ?

Hi all

I currently have a Pentium 4 3Ghz HT processor in an Asus P5GDC-V
motherboard.

The MB Specs are

* Intel LGA775 Pentium 4 CPU
* Intel 915G chipset
* Dual-Channel DDR&DDR2
* Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900
* PCI Express Architecture
* High Definition Audio
* Stack CoolT
* AI NOST
* AI NET2

As this is a LGA775 board does this mean I can upgrade the CPU to a Pentium
D or even a Dual Core cpu?

Thanks for any help as this is confusing me.

Single core only. You can go from your 3.0 to a 3.8GHz single core,
but that is about it. Core 2 Duo usually means a new motherboard.

This is an example of a P4 670 3.8GHz.

Only $660

For that price, you could buy a very nice Core 2 Duo *and* a motherboard.

Thanks Paul

Looks like I will upgrade the motherboard and get a dual core cpu in this
case. Thanks for your help and links.
