Default Upgrading to Conroe!

I have a dell GX280 with an i915P/i915G motherboard w/ an LGA775 socket, its the motherboard that came with the computer so I was owndering if it was possible to upgrade to a Conroe using my existing setup? And maybe if it would be possible to overclock it as well.

Thanks in advance

I think it has to be the 975X chipset or the P965 Express.

no that wont work, you'd be better off just using everythign from your existing computer with a brand new motherboard and conroe.

Ok, sounds good any recommendations on motherboards that would work with the Conroe?

The only 975x motherboards taht support Conroe are the Intel "bad axe" make sure it is revision 304, or it wont work. There is also the ASUS P5WDH, and DFI Infinity.
