The 335, 335J and 336 support the 845G Chipset, Scan.co.uk is a great place if you ask me. I would go with them. Submit a Question about it to be sure though. I'm pretty sure it should work though.

BUMP I just subbmited a question and they emailed me back saying they don't ship outside the UK, and didn't say weather the celeron D would work, does any one no for a fact that the celeron D will work with the 845G chipset. I would think it would as long as it has the northwood core?? Am i correct or no would a malay work.

Also will the celeron D be any noticable increase in performance compared to my P4 1.8 willimette, my mobo has oc'ing capabilities so i could oc the cele D also. The P4 1.8 when oced to a 2ghz it will run for a hour or so then just reboot, with temps staying at 40c. But then i turn it back down and it doesn't restart or anything after hours of use, and has the same temp as when i turn it up. Is the cele D better for Ocing

CeleD is not as good as a P4. I would go with a P4 instead. They are a lot better than celerons. If you are a super tight budget, then get a CeleD, if not, look for a P4.

What kinda P4 could i get for that board though with the 845G chipset, i know the EPOX 4G4A+ can support the 533mhz front side bus P4 withe the northwood core i just don't know were to get them at. I took at my 1.8p4 and put my regular 2.7cele back in and its oced to a 3.10 running buetiful no problems at all around 54c. So what P4 could i put in my mobo, sorry for all the questions guys, im a noob lol. We all start somewere right. Thank you

It is true that Northwood P4s are getting very difficult, if not impossible to find. I would check ebay for some northwood P4s. But that would be your best bet to find a 533 northy.

In my experience, Northwood cores are hard to find, yes.. and ussually expensive.

I'd use something like pricegrabber.com to find the best price.

Just make sure if you OC, you use proper cooling and that your new CPU is compatible with your current board (socket type).

If you've seen some results of overclocking, it can damage more than your CPU (extreme overclocking videos on Google, with no HS). I don't think you'd push it that far.. but OC'ing the CPU without proper cooling will obviously burn it out.

yeah, you cant really see it in the Duron one, but in the P4 one, smoke comes out from the BOTTOM of the the table. Which totally gives it away.

BUMP one more question though isn't a celeron D pretty much the same as the northwood pentium 4's only difference i can see is that the celeron D has 256 cache and the P4 has 512, but they both have 533 front side bus and so on. Please correct me if im wrong or let me know if im right. Just wondering

yeah, that is pretty much the only difference. But Celerons have a lower clock speed too.
