Default Cpu upgrade, need quick help please

hi all im new here well i recently got a new mobo for my system it is the
Asus p5gd1-fms 775 motherboard seen here BzBoyz.com - Asus P5GD1-FMS 775 Intel 915GExp. 800FSB DDR-400 PCI.e Motherboard : Socket 775 DDR PCI Express Motherboard

but my Cpu is fried!! the dead cpu is a intel pentium 4 3.0ghz Hyperthreading and 90nm.

what my question is guys i read and heard that cedar mill is a good cpu it gives 65 nm technology which makes it run less hot!.

i really want to upgrade from 90nm to 65nm and the intel pentium 4 cedar mill 3.0 ghz with hyperthreading 65 nm is looking real well! its seen here Newegg.com - Intel Pentium 4 631 Cedar Mill 3.0GHz 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

NOW ON TO MY PROBLEM! will this new asus motherboard that i got support the 65nm technology? or am i stuck with buying 90 nm.. please help me out i tried everywhere to find it in asustek.. they only got p5gd1 general info not the fms version.. i really want 65 nm.... can i buy cedarmill please will it work??

i wouldnt do p4... you should really do dual core Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
those are only around $10 more expensive than that and they are dual core, and can be overclocked up to 3ghz

edit: nevermind just looked at that board... does not support dual core. yes you will be fine with that p4.

you would be better off going with a core 2 duo

then just get the first dual core mentioned for like $80, but don't get a Pentium D. And if you just want something quick then that will do you fine until you can upgrade later like you said.

I don't knwo man. You could do so much better with the intel dual core e2140. It's the same price too, and it will work fine on your motherboard.
