Intel p4 1.7 GHZ (Socket 478)
Intel 845GL chipset on a mercury Motherboard

Above r my system configuration. I am having some problem with my motherboard so i decided to get a new Intel motherboard. As Intel 845GL and GVSR mob r not found in the market i am thinking to go for a Intel Board with intel 865GV chipset, can i have my old p4 1.7 GHZ cpu on this new Intel 865GV motherboard

intel 865GBF will cost u around 4k instead try Asus P4P800-VM(865) i hav used intel865GBF its ok.asus 865 is betta one of my frnd has used dat its betta den dat of intel.if u can then go for 875 chipset dats da best u can get for 478 soc but it dun hav a onboard GPU but its the best performer far betta then 865.

intel 865gbf is no more under production .. u will only get old stock. do verify its warranty before buying it. i suugest going for the asus p4p-800-vm instead. whateva u buy verify its warranty surely beofre buying.
