Default Simple-ish MB question

Hey all,

Currently doing research for an extensive PC upgrade, and intend to go for a Conroe MB in august. My question is:

Would a MB built purly for "Allendale" type processors be able to support Intel Celeron D processors? Is this still a shady area or can someone say 100% Yes.

Reason i ask is because i kinda need a heavy upgrade (MB, GC, Proc, Mem, PSU and Case) for about £500-600, and if i could use a Intel D for a couple of months till more Conroe processors come out, seeing their going dirt cheap atm, and could get even cheaper over the next month.

Thanks

Hmm, been over a week since i posted and no answer?

I'm kinda working on my build now and really need to know the answer to this. Is there some problem with the question? i can re-write it if need be.

I dunno what allendale is, or Celeron D, but what sockets are the CPU's in question, what chipset does the motherboard have and I will try an figure this out for you.

hmm, sorry. I kinda riped the names from Wikipedia:

"Allendale is a codename for Conroe-Based processors with only 2MB of L2 Cache (Conroe is with 4MB of L2), the models of Allendale are: E4300 (1.8GHz, 800MHz FSB QDR), E6200 (1.6GHz, 1066MHz FSB QDR), E6300 (1.86GHz, 1066MHz FSB QDR) and E6400 (2.13GHz, 1066MHz FSB QDR)."

-Wikipedia

THat's where i read up on next-gen chips.

Celeron D is the cheap socket 775 chips available on Overclockers


They have the same socket number, but i understand that conroe-based processors need a different motherboard settings, just wondering if this would make it unable to use previous 775 chips.

I am confident it will work, it's just i want to be 100% before proceding, returns can be a messey buissness, especially if there's nothing wrong with it.

I haven't decided on what MB to have yet. Might be looking at a Asus or DFI, but i'll probably create a post at some point detailing my purchase plan so others can check for anything that won't work.

If the mobo will run C2D, it should run any LGA775 CPU.

ok, thanks for the answers, i'll probably move in that direction and get a Conroe in a few months.
