Default Conroe asks ^_^

Upon checking Intel's site, is Intel Core Duo Supports Intel 975X Chipsets only? Conroe is designed at LGA775 socket right? I have a mobo with i845P chipset, will it still run?

Or in other way, if I buy for example a 975X board, will my current CPU (prescott 2.66 LGA) run on it?

What other chipsets does Conroe supports?

AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Venice
MSI K8N Neo4-F
Palit Geforce 6200TC 256Mb
2x512Mb SS Corsair Value Select
160Gb Seagate SATA

No, the Conroe will not run on your motherboard. Yes your current CPU will work with a new board. There is a thread at XS for all supported boards.

Don't buy an 975X now, just wait for the 965's, they will probably be 1/2-3/4's as cheap and be utilizing newer technology. Plus, you don't need it until Conroe anyway ...
