Yes they require socket 775 although there are some like the one I have that are for socket 478. Although if you're system is new you should have a socket 775 motherboard if you do you're motherboard supports all Intel cpus




So I don't need to buy a new Mother Board?

Can you tell me you're motherboard socket? It's either 774 or 775 because of the Pentium D. And the processor will increase computer performance but FPS depends on you're graphic card.

I have an X1900XTX and the CPU will also affect the FPS.
And how would I find out my CPU socket type?

I think Syspec tells you that or any other program that detects hardware.

Pentium D's are socket 775 but the older 775 boards do not support the newer Conroe Chipset even though its on the same socket.. You will have to get a new motherboard that supports core 2 duo..


By the way your current processor is not a Core Duo... A core duo is the laptop first gen duos... Your Pentium D is just called A Pentium D and nothing else..


Yes even though games are gpu dependant you will see a small increase in fps in games.. Look up benchmarks on the core 2 duos with the pentium D's on the same chart and you will see that even with the same video card the core 2 duo E6600 will be better fps. It also depends on the game, some games will be marginally higher and on others you will see and feel the difference.


Im guessing your pentium d with 2.8 is the pentium d 920 model which it has 2.8ghz...


These are just some 3d game benchmarks

As you can see on all the test systems they use the same components and on the memory they still use 2gb on all systems.. they use the same video card also on all of those systems..

Even though games are more gpu dependent like I said many times I know.. You will still see a difference because the First gen pentium dual cores stunk.. You will see a pretty big difference on games like call of duty 2..

Depending on how much you have to spend, I would go with one of these two motherboards:

and one of these two processors:
