No. Select a 775 board that is compatable with your old ram, or be prepared to spend at least $350 for an upgrade due to the cost of ram. If you already have pc5300 or pc6400, then a g41 chipset board will work with most of the core2 duos or quads. I got one with a frys combo special for $45 last week, and it works great. It's a biostar g41 m7.

NO WAY... the Core i series are socket 1156 or 1366 depending on which one you get. Your P4 is socket 775. These people before didn't look closely at what you said in your post...

Oh, BTW, for a i-series, not only will you need a new mobo and proc, but you will also need DDR3 memory, I'm guessing you have DDR2. You're looking at $500 or so for a decent upgrade and it goes up from there...
