Will This CPU Work On My Motherboard?

i have an asus p4c800e deluxe motherboard. i am currently running an intlel p4 ht 2.8ghz cpu. i was wondering if i could upgrade to this processor:

and if there would be a performance increase.
thank you for your time.

    i would recommend you stay with the cpu you have, as that celoron you looking into is much slower than than the p4 .
  2. ok but i thouhght that a celeron d was dual core, thats why im not sure if its compatible or not? i thouht the d stood for dual core, but does it?

    Nope. the D just there for identification between all the other celeron series. it's a single core cpu. It has a slower FSB and GHz.
  4. oh so a pentium d is not dual core either?
  5. it is. Intel's old naming scheme was not exactly consumer-friendly.
  6. huh. so a celeron d is or isnt dual core, and neither is a pentium d?
    i dont get it!

    Pentium D's are dual core cpus, but celeon D's are not. As chris13th said, "Intel's old naming scheme was not exactly consumer-friendly."

    although if you have a 478 socket, (just like me) you're out of luck on just a cpu upgrade. The Pentium d's and Pentium dual-cores are LGA 775 cpu's.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentium_Dual-Core

    To get one of them you'll need an Lga 775 motherboard that can accept them. Although just like the 478 cpu, the LGA 775 cpus will soon die out due to the new LGA 1156 and 1366 cpus.
