Default Building a computer, new

Hello, im new here on the forum...
Have some questions,
Ive bought a board 'Asus P5ND2 SE NVIDIA Crush19 Ultra' for about 80 (new), the guy at the store said it is compatible with the latest Intel Duo2 Core up to 2.94GHz/cpu, but im not sure?? In the manual its says

CPU: LGA 775 socket for Intel Core2 Extreme/Core 2 Duo Pentium D/Pentium 4/Celeron D processors. Support Intel EM64T/EIST/Hyper-ThreadingTechnology
Support Intel next generation 65nm Dual Core CPU. Support Intel 05B/05A & 06B CPU
Does that mean i can use a Core2 Extreme processor??? Im not so experienced with hardware.

He didn't lie. The Core 2 Extremes are the CPU's clocked at 2.93ghz....and the manual says Core 2 Extreme. So the manual and the guy both basically said it will support any Core 2 Duo or extreme
