Default What is the best Intel processor for about 200$-250$ (conroe question)

Ok hear me out on this dont say "dont go with intel AMD is much better" for those of you who want to post that go somewhere else.

ok i was looking at the conroe benchmarks on anandtech and decided to search the mobo they tested it with and it came out to be a s775 board so i got to thinking if i got a s775 mobo, i could upgrade to conroe alot eaiser than if i were to go with an AMD CPU and then uupgrade to conroe. but im still wondering if conroe would work in s775 mobos that are made now.

if canroe CPU's will work in a current s775 mobo then i want to know the best intel CPU i can get for a good price that fits my budget (1300$) so does anyone know a good s775 CPU for about 200 or 250$

Im thinking about this Pentium d with a presler core

I doubt that the motherboard out right now will work with the conroe core. I htink the only way it might work is if the motherboard manufacturer comes out with a update to support but i doubt that will happen.

Dont spend the money on the Pentiums D's they suck ***, ur better off just going with this.

You have to get an intel 965 board or higher in order to use conroe.
