That motherboard does not support Conroe processors.

http://www.asrock.co...p?Model=775i65G

notice that nowhere it says it supports core duo or core2 duo.

I think the only way to be able to use your AGP video card and a conroe capable motherboard is with a Asrock ConRoeXFire-eSATA2 Motherboard.

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813157096

If you chose to upgrade to a PCI-E video card yopur choices would be much wider.

http://www.newegg.co...SubCategory=280

I would think twice about using a cheaper priced mptherboard. I have never been satisfied with them. I stick with Gigabyte, Abit, Biostar, DFI, and Intel motherboards. I have had too many problems with Asus MB's to deal with them anymore.I hate the SIS chipset MB's and really don't like the VIA chipsets much as they tend to only try keeping up with the intel chipsets. Nforce chipsets seem to be up and coming. While ATI chipsets seems to have stagnated. Like anything else in life you get what you pay for and low prices means cut corners to me.

In the box means it's Retail while OEM packaging ( without the box and heatsink)also means there is no warranty other than 30 days or so.

i liked that mobo cause i read this review on anadtech acording to them it does suport core duo

¨The overall performance of the ASRock 775i65G board still surprised us, even though we already knew it was just as competitive with the other chipsets from our previous testing. It proved itself once again to be extremely stable with every benchmark or application we threw at it. If you still have a high performance AGP 8X video card and DDR memory then this board would make an incredible "budget" system with the addition of an E6300 or E6400 Core 2 Duo processor. The same holds true for the ASRock 775Dual-VSTA board which also allows you to use a current PCI Express video card at a small performance penalty and DDR2 memory which improves performance slightly over DDR-400.¨

You could choose one of these mobos which support C2D and AGP. They should also be compatible with your current RAM.
