I am trying to do this "on the cheap", so that is why I picked this MSI 915p mainboard. I am unclear as to what speed cpu I can go with. How do I select the proper cpu? Will it accept any LGA 775 Socket "T", or is there more to it?

Thanks! :thumbsup:

This is what it says:

CPU

Supports Intel Pentium 4 Prescott processors in LGA 775 (Socket T) package
Supports Pentium 4 3XX, 5XX Processor or higher speed
Supports Intel Hyper-Threading (HT) Technology

It looks like you can only put Pentium 4's in it.

I just tried looking for a Pentium 4 on Newegg, and they only have one socket 775, and it is out of stock. They most likely won't be getting anymore either, Intel stopped making them a while back.

So as long as it is Pentium 4, socket 775, with 80mhz FSB, you should be fine.

Starmicro.net has a selection of these cpu's. So the only thing I need to make sure of is that it is a P4 LGA 775 & that it is 800 mhz FSB? Can others confirm? I don't know for sure & I can't send it back if it is incorrect.
