the 2140 has a fsb of 800mhz, and your mobo may support it with a bios update. you have to flash the bios to update it. and they are a couple ways of doing it.
some mobos have a windows utility, some you have to do it from a floppy or flash drive.
you better let one of the intel boys answer this question...but there is indeed a chance that you can run an allendale in it.
there is no question that if you can, you should. especially for the same price.

Before recommending C2D's to him, anyone have sources that say wether or not the Intel 915G chipset will support a C2D?

If I were in your shoes. I would go back to CompUSA, have them refund your $50 for the diagnostic, as it was wrong. Their mistake cost you not only for their work, but also for a part that you didn't need.

[EDIT] I am going to go ahead and speculate that given the age of the chipset (2004), it will not support a Core 2 CPU....

ah i didnt know where to look i did a quick google of the motherboard.
according to ED's table he linked your chipset will support celeron and pentium4.
i dont know if the bios update would allow it to run an allendale or not. if i had to wager on it, i would say it wouldnt. you may want to call your mobo's tech support and ask.
