Default Question on Pentium D compatible motherboards

I was persuing my local fry's electronic store when I came across a motherboard that was built to run the new Pentium D. I was wondering if that motherboard would also be able to run a Pentium 4.

Yes. Pentium D run on the LGA775 socket as well as a whole line of Pentium 4 HT (Hyper Threading) and Pentium 4 EE (Extreme Edition).

What chipset was it using? Some Pentium D supported motherboard can support the P4's HT and the Celeron D's as well but not the P4 EE's.

Yeah, the 945P Intel chipset will definitely support the Pentium D, Pentium 4 HT, and Celeron D. Just make sure the P4 is compatible with socket LGA775 that is on the motherboard. Most processor packaging or on the website you want to buy it from will tell you what socket the CPU supports. I'm sure that most are the newer LGA775 anyways.

I recommend the P4 with Hyper Threading if you want a P4. Otherwise, a Pentium D is nice to have because of it's dual core capabilities.
