    The mother board i ended up buying said it supported "1066 (OC)/1200/800" so I guess I'm fine.

    Oh wait. The P35 mobo is out of stock. What's the next best thing?

    Alright I'll buy the P35 mobo and the processor you mentioned. The one thing I have never done with a PC is replace the mobo so is their anything important I need to know before I do this later on this week? Do i just detach everything from my current one and pull it out and put the new one in and reattach everything and I'm all set?

    hmmm. tbh with pre-built pcs you are always gonna be in this position, ie poor support in terms of bios releases. An Asus, Dfi,Gigabyte -big brand p35 mobo is really your best option with say a Q6600(which are fantastic performance/price wise) or a 8400 wolfdale if you feel confident about updating the bios-either of these would be night and day better than the pentium d @3ghz. Putting it together is no big deal -we're here to help just PM me.

    All the technician said was that they have not tested Allendale CPUs so they do not know whether it will work or not.

    I'm talking with a technician right now. Thanks for your help. If I run in to a problem I will post it.

    Neither the E4600(2.4) nor the E4700(2.6) -better still, will bottleneck it. They're both much quicker than the pentium d @3ghz

    ok. Oh and one last question, Will getting the processor you mentioned "bottleneck" my system?

    Afaik the Allendales are just the same as conroes with less L2 cache, they're all 65nm process chips, however to be extra sure go on a compaq forum or use their technical emessage system to ask this question to be 100%.

    You really should make sure the E4700 will work before you buy it, if the bios does not recognize it, you may be stuck.. The E4600 has been around a long time, it should work for sure. Compaq brand is well known for proprietary BS. Many do not even have options for adding or changing anything.

    So Allendale will work?

    Only one I could find from a quick search on new egg was this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115045
    It doesn't say Conroe Core in it, but it doesn't say another manufacturer either...
