I got an old computer for repairs and I need a new motherboard for it to match its processor. It has a LGA775 P4 3GHz processor. The new intel motherboards with LGA 775 socket doesn't list old P4 processors in the compatibility list. But since its the same socket do you think I will be able to use this processor in a new intel essential series board that has a LGA 775 socket?
It is highly unlikley that the new boards will work. YOu will need to look at the older boards for sure before the 3 series ones, if not maybe older, as in 945/965 etc
