  1. If your power supply is adequate for your complete system load, then no. As long as you aren't getting windows bluescreens or random freezes/reboots, then you should be ok. Run it for awhile and see if you have any problems; if you change boards, get an Intel p45 or x38 that can use your ddr2 and you might avoid reinstalling windows, especially if the motherboard is the same brand (Intel).
  2. i just have looked and seen that my board revision is not supported.will there be damage if i continue to run it?

    No. It simply won't identify the cpu correctly during the post. Serious issues are bluescreens, which are usually a memory issue, or freeze ups and reboots. It won't hurt to change boards, but if you've never done it before, you'll need to do some reading. Download the motherboard manual before ordering any board and read sections of it. Some are well written, some not. For any oem system (dell, hp, etc), your windows installation may only work with the original board or possibly with a replacement dell, hp board.
