Hey everyone I'm back
I have been looking at getting a new CPU.
My current one is a pentium dual core on an LGA775 socket. My PSU is 400W and my mobo is a Gigabyte G31M.
Would this one work on it and if so would I just put it in or would I have to change any bios settings because my bios settings are saying that the performance for the system is on extreme

Whether or not it works depends on your motherboard.  Most Gigabyte G31M motherboards support Pentium D 945's, however, make sure your BIOS is up-to-date before installing the new CPU.

So um...
The bios MIB Intelligent tweaker is saying the PCI-E performance is on turbo and the system performance is in extreme. So would I have to put these back to normal? Also would I have to reinstall all the drivers?

Probably you would have to do a CMOS reset to return all BIOS settings to default.  Bear in mind a Pentium D CPU will probably be a downgrade from a Pentium Dual Core.  It depends on what exact model your current CPU is.  "Pentium Dual Core" branding in a Socket 775 chip is likely to be a CPU from the Core 2 family.  The Pentium D is from the Pentium 4 (Netburst) line which are older and considerably less efficient than the Core 2 CPU's.

 

For example, a Pentium Dual Core E6300 (a later S775 Pentium Dual Core) is roughly 2.5 times faster than a Pentium D 945 in benchmarks.
