Default what socket is the intel conroe going to use?

hey all, my comp i just put together uses the LG775 or what ever its called (the new socket) from intel, will the conroe use a diffrent socket? If so then screw buying one ill just get another dirt cheap pentium 4 3.6 or 3.8 when they go down in price.

I believe it uses socket 775, but it has some new hardware requirements and only a few of the motherboards out right now meet those requirements.

Yea, and I believe the ones out right now are quite expensive, as in a couple hundred USD.

1.) Its your own fault for not doing your rescearch before buying.

2.) Why would you expect [cheap] motherboards to be avaliable for a processor that isn't even out for another 2 months?

If i did research and waited for every new tech to release i would never own a computer. im just saying it would have been nice if they would have found a way to get it to run on todays socket 775 becouse i hate having to buy a new mobo to run **** becouse some times everything is not compatable

There is NO excuse for not doing research.

Then you should've looked for sooner information. Whereever it said that it would use 775, it also said that it would need a 975X chipset.

Whats wrong? The chipset.
