New processor - is it compatible?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

i am building my dad a PC from parts that i have used from my old pc.
I need to purchase a new processor, only a billy basic one, so i have decided to go for celeron.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/New-Celeron-D-...ayphotohosting

The motherboard i have put in to the rig is an ASrock 775v88+

Specs of ASrock 775v88+:

LGA775 Intel pentium 4/celeron processor. Prescott ready.
VIA PT880 chipset, Intel 04B/04A processors compatible, Hyper-threading technology
FSB800/533 and Dual Channel technology
Hybrid booster AS rock, safe overclocking technology

Is this motherboard compatible with the link i sent you above (the processor)?

I have 512gb RAM at the moment, but i guess he will take some from his current pc (so long as it is compatible) to up it a bit

The PSU i have is a bob standard 230v, which was supplied with the motherboard in my previous PC rig, so that compatibality is no issue here.

Also, with regards to the HDD, Floppy drive, etc connectors (ribbons??), can you use any 'version' on a pc rig so long as teh pins are the same. (by 'version' - i was supplied with ASUS ones with my current asus motherboard, so can these only be used on an asus mobo or compatibility wise it is fine so long as pins are equal?)

Any more suggestions?

Thank You once again all

Yes, you might need a BIOS flash depending on the boards release date but it should handle the Celeron "D" just fine. Sometimes the IDE cables from ASUS can have a plug in the lower middle and will not work on other boards that have a pin on the mainboard. Otherwise all you really have to be sure about is that the 80 line IDE follows your IDE hard drive.

IDE 80 line is the cable that your cdrom & IDE hd use.

There are two cables created for IDE drives. They are 40 line and 80 line. For any drive of 66MHz (UDMA/66) to 133MHz (UDMA/133) inclusive you should use the 80 line cable.
