Default ? about what CPU I can install

I am running this makeshift compy from a dell dimension 4700.

I have upgraded it a fair bit to :
P4 3.0ghz
2 GB DDR2
Geforce 8600gt

now the socket type is a 775 LGA, but on the website it says the processors it supports. It only lists single core CPUs. I'm wondering if I put a socket 775 dual core in it, if it will work. It's the same socket.

I think the site may have been written before dual core was released.

Thanks!


EDIT: the motherboard has the 915 intel chipset

Since the 915G Express chipset was designed for the Pentium 4, you might be able to run a dual core Pentium 4 CPU, but doubt that a Core 2 Duo would work.
