No.

the best thing to do is to check the manufacture website and get a detailed list of what CPUs it will accept.

What board is it?

That Board does not Accept the Newer Celerons such as Celeron D.

That motherboard only supports 400FSB CPUs according to that website. You will have to look for a CPU that has a 400Mhz FSB, and no, the Celeron Ds will not work.

As ENTERPRISE suggests, your best bet is to buy a new board that takes newer processors. I don't see any 400FSB CPUs on Newegg for the 478 socket. You will likely have to go to ebay.

I do have a few 400FSB CPUs in my house, I was thinking of selling on eBay, but I just moved and everything is still in boxes, and I go on a 2 week vacation on Wed.
