The best cpu it can use is Pentium D 960 (not Pentium dual-core, different cpu). Although 95%+ of the cpu's that can run on this motherboard cant not be bought anymore.

You can get the Pentium D's on ebay or you can get 1 of these 2 P4's from newegg.

Unless you already have a nearly equivalent cpu or better, i would get the Pentium 4 2.8 ghz for the $30


If your wanting something better than the old and slow pentiums (except dual core), Like the Pentium dual core or core 2 duo/quad, you'll need to get a new motherboard.

How much are you willing to spend on a CPU is the question?
Only 775 socket Processor can fit into the motherboard. But note that is the motherboard can support Only Up tp Pentium D.
Choice : Pentium D 960(3.6GHz,4MB)

Thanks for the replys. I have a Pentium D 940 3.20 GHz. Would a Pentium D 960 be much of a improvement? or will I have to buy a new motherboard and cpu?

+1 for Keiki 646

Get that combo with the OCZ memory. If u are able to overclock that baby get a good aftermarket heatsink. Believe, is wort every penny. That Cpu have a multiplier of 11 and that is great on Wolfdale architecture. Imagine what means 11x400Mhz (the maximum supported by that mobo for a 1600Mhz Fsb). And that memory is a masked PC2-5300 667 MHz with EPP1 profile Full performance 1066 MHz. Is very good for overclocking. Try to overclock at a max. 4 GHz. Enjoy and good luck.
