Suggest a motherboard with LGA775 Socket (for dual core processor)

Hello,

This is for my old home computer.
I have 2.8GHz intel dual core processor, 2Gb 533MHz RAM, Intel Desktop Board D102GGC2.

My motherboard D102GGC2 is not working now and I need to buy new one.
Suggest me a LGA775 Socket compatible good motherboard.

Thanks,
Dhaval

    Your motherboard is based on an ATI chipset. You could buy a used D102GGC2 so that you won't have to reinstall drivers, etc.

    New inexpensive socket LGA775 motherboards:

    - ASRock G31M-S R2.0
    - GIGABYTE GA-G41MT-S2P
    - MSI G31TM-P21 (supports Pentium D 915 only, not the 820 or the 920)

    Is your processor a Pentium D 820, 915 or 920?

    Hi, Thanks for reply,
    I have to check for my processor version.
    My one more doubt is that .....
    the mother board Intel DG41RQ supports only two RAM frequency( Memory Frequency:800, 667 MHz) and my RAM is of 533MHz frequency.
    So, If I buy DG41RQ then I have to change my ram also or it will be compatible with DG41RQ?

    Can you provide me inexpensive motherboard with..
    MicroATX Factor
    LGA775 socket
    RAM - DDR2 with 533MHZ support.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    That's what I did. First check what CPU you have because few motherboards support the Pentium D. As an example, the Intel DG41RQ motherboard doesn't support them.
  4. I am confused,

    If I buy DG41 then do I have to change RAM?

    Your RAM should work, but you can't be 100% sure as Intel doesn't specifically mention it. More importantly, make sure that it supports your processor. If you own a Pentium D processor, then the ASRock G31M-S R2.0 might be the best option. It also officially support DDR2-533 MHz RAM: http://www.asrock.com/download/e-catalog/G31M-S%20R2.0.pdf
  6. Hello,
    Thanks for your reply.
    I have planned to buy motherboard with DDR3 support as 2GB DDR3 RAM will cost only 650Rs (13USD).

    I have finalized two motherboards, It will be a great help if you suggest best one among two.

    (1) Asus P5G41T-M-LX http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5G41TM_LX/#specifications
    my question is that, "can you tell me whether it supports all Pentium D (2.8GHz version only)processor version D815, D915 and D920?"
    I am not able to identify asus motherboard supported processor versions because on it's site it is given as E5500,E6300.


    (2) Gigabyte G41M-T S2P http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3743#sp
    I don't have any confusion as this gigabyte motheboard supports all Pentium D version of 2.8GHz clk.


    So, please clear my doubt that given asus motherboard supports all three Pentium D processor number D815, D915, D920 or not???

    Suggest best motherboard among two.

    Thanks,
    Dhaval
  7. Since they're not on the list, presume that the Asus motherboard doesn't support Pentium D processors.

    Only the Gigabyte meets your requirements.

  9. I would personally look for an asus x38 mobo if you want to stay with your ddr2 ram. The p5e with wifi was a pretty great board for the last of the ddr2 era.
