Default Socket confusion

I'm getting an old board to sort out the old computer I got for free, it had a socket 478 board which is dead, but I thought I might as well go for LGA 775 from reading around a bit I thought it supported cpu's right up to the core 2's, but I've just been on amazon looking at some and they all say only Celeron and P4, I'm a little confused, do all LGA 775's not have the same cpu support?

I'm actually looking at this, even if it doesn't go past the p4 I have at home, I think it would be worth it for the pci-e and ddr2 ram, but I see the socket 478 heat sink I have wouldn't fit, so I found this CPU Cooling PWM Fan Heatsink 4Pin for Intel P4 Socket 775 to 3.8GHz | eBay at the risk of sounding like captain obvious here, would it fit? and finally can anyone tell what front panel connectors are on this, it looks a little worrying but the picture really isn't very revealing

Sorry, I thought I'd posted the link to the board as well there, must have forgot, I've actually realised I've missed the last one, but here's one similar for slightly more DELL OPTIPLEX GX320 MOTHERBOARD DELL P/N:0MH651 SOCKET 775 | eBay

Some boards with LGA 775 will support Core 2 Duo CPU's but this one won't, It's to old and it only uses DDR SDRAM so that would cause a bottleneck. So the best CPU that you would get in there would be a P4 or Celeron.

Hmm, I'm sure actually the other one had DDR2, but I've just had the computer apart again looking and I've just realised the motherboard is not at fault, the cpu has 2 pins broken off and a couple of bent one's, luckily this cpu is about 2 so I'm going to order it now, the upgrade to socket 775 might now wait for a short while.

Well according to the Crucial scanner it takes DDR2 Computer memory upgrades for Dell OptiPlex 320 Desktop/PC from Crucial.com, Here is the manual if you need it ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-produ...uide_en-us.pdf. So it may take a Core 2 Duo but you may need to update the bios.

Thanks, just bookmarked it, I have a case in mind for another build soon, 13 brand new from ccl, nothing fancy, but I think it will do fine for a 775 build, when I've done that, I'll probably sell the 478 one, or maybe put it in my room

That's a BTX board and will not work in an ATX case.

They must have listed it wrong then as they've put ATX, but then so did the motherboard I looked at the other day but it was mATX, so I wouldn't put it past them listing it wrong. I have found another one listed as ATX with ddr2 and what looks like pci-e I do see what you mean though, the expansion slots are on the other side, I also don't see how this would fit, I think I'll have to keep my eye out for this as they don't seem to be listing them properly http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dell-OptiPlex-760-Desktop-LGA-775-Motherboard-P-N-0M858N-/191091315153?pt=UK_Computing_LaptopMotherboards_CP Us_CA&hash=item2c7dee11d1
