steelGrunt;3341796Can someone clear this up for me... I checked these links and the mobo that he had listed wont support the core 2 duo or am I just going crazy... I looked like 3 times and I didnt see is listed???

No, nForce4 doesn't support Conroe. It's good up through Smithfield, and might support Presler as well. But not Conroe.

The board you chose has the P965 chipset, which supports Core 2 Duo.

Ok .. just to clear up some confusion on the reinstall of the os issue. ( i will leave the board and chip to C3, archon and them LOL ) When changing your motherboard, if the chipset is different, you will UNDOUBTABLY need to REINSTALL your OS. It has a lot to do with hardware registry and the parts themselves. I am speaking from expeiriance. You have a chance of it working. Worse comes to worse you can start it and see what happens. In most cases you will get a hardware (bluescreen) error.

I am so uber-l33t. Oh, wait, I mean I can use a search engine. Yeah, that's what I meant. Not l33tness or anything, basic internet usage...

Examples include Intel's 875P P965 and 975X, nVidia's nForce line.

Bingo ... it is like having a key to your old house and you wanting to use it for your new house. It isn't going to work. You need to change the key ....
