    Need help with buying a motherboard

    mod_kp

      Hi,

       

      I have Intel processor and a Mecury motherboard. These days my computer is behaving weired and I want to buy a new Motherboard from Intel

       

      My processor:

       

      Intel Pentium D Processor 820
      LGA775 Pkg, 2.80 GHz, UP Only
      Requires Intel 945/955X Express Chipset PCG05A

       

      I did a little search and I think these three MBs are supported for my processor.

       

      Intel Desktop Board D945GCLF
      Intel Desktop Board D945GCLF2
      Intel Desktop Board D945GSEJT

       

      Could you please suggest. I also wanted to know about the Express Chipset my processor requires.

       

      Note: Indeed there has been advancements in processor technologies and of course there would be more, but I cannot keep myself in pace with this mammoth growth. I do not want to throw my processor and also do not want to pull that extra buck.
