I am looking into switching my motherboard over so i can use pci video cards Instead of agp and i was wondering if i could still use all my bits and whatnot from my old rig on the new motherboard, my main concern is my cpu....
the motherboard im looking at is pretty much the same thing just with more ram slots and a pci slot instead of an agp.

in short.
Can i get my celeron D from one LGA775 to another LGA775 on a different motherboard.

Thanks, I hope this makes a fogy silloute of sense to you guys

yes you can, but be aware that if you use windows xp that can create unwanted problems. Windows XP does check for changes in hardware configuration and it may kick a message that you need to reinstal your system because to many changes been made to original hardware since system instalation. If that happends, I recommend that you reinstall your system...

M$ looks at several items to authenticate your OS, changing the CPU will nullify this. You will need to contact M$ to correct this.
