Default New MOBO and CPU

I just bought this mobo:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=290191689054

and looking to get this CPU

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115017

I know that the mobo isn't the best on the market, and I'm not really looking for that at the moment. It's just a place holder until I can save up enough money to get a much better one.

I just want to know if its compatible? I looked at the SOCKET (775), and it looks good.

So just the socket has to do with compatibility? Nothing else matters such as the FSB etc?

It only supports the core 2 duos. They aren't compatible. Look for something with a P35 chipset. They'll be cheap now.

Here is what it says in the info on that Ebay link.

LGA775 socket for IntelR Core2 Dual/ Pentium D / Pentium 4 / Celeron D Processors
Compatible with Intel 05B/05A/06 processors
IntelR EM64T / EIST* / Hyper-Threading Technology ready
* Refer to www.asus.com for Intel CPU support list

It doesn't say quad core. And here is a New egg link and it also doesn't say quad core support.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...LI%2bLGA%2b775

It supports the core2duo but not quad cores like the one you bought.

Edit: I see worshipme beat me, Damn dial up! And to CRYMAN DO NOT TELL PEOPLE THINGS WILL WORK WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT!!! If your not 100% it will work DON'T SAY IT WILL WORK. And besides that you didn't save him anything since he already bought the board. Hopefully the seller will issue a refund. But looking at his terms I think the OP is SOL.

I returned the Quad core and got a 2.66ghz dual core. I should be fine. Thanks alot guys. (P.S The board was only $37 so I've left myself some room to upgrade in the future).
