  1. The Intel DG41TY is not compatible with a Pentium D 820. Your can't rely on sites like Newegg to determine if a motherboard is compatible; always visit the manufacturer's site to make sure.

    It will be difficult to find a new motherboard supporting that CPU. Are you looking for a micro-ATX motherboard with on-board video or would an ATX motherboard meet your requirements?

    Micro-ATX motherboards that should be compatible (and inexpensive):
    - ASUS P5KPL-CM
    - GIGABYTE GA-EG41M-US2H
    - GIGABYTE GA-G41M-ES2L

    ATX motherboards that should be compatible
    - ASUS P5Q SE
    - GA-EP45-UD3L
  2. Thank you! I have a friend who had an Intel DG31PR motherboard will it support Pentium D 2.8 Ghz processor?
  3. do pentium d support more than 2 gb ram?
