Default Is my motherboard compatible with this CPU? help

This one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115028



My motherboard:
http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/...nt.php?S_ID=94

It`s not on the list but that may be because the motherboard is old?

It will not support that CPU. That Biostar motherboard only supports up to 1066MHz FSB CPU's. The processor you selected runs on a 1333MHz FSB.

Yes, it will work, the only difference between it and the e6400 is double the cache size.

A mobo that will support the new C2Ds 45nm included isn't going to cost very much, look: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128077

yeah but that board doesnt has pci-e where the one he has now is agp, so hes screwed if he has an agp card, if hes using the onboard graphics on his current board hes screwed with that one because it doesnt have onboard graphics, so with that choice of board hes screwed either way.
