new mobo required

My motherboard is goosed so i want to replace it but I am unsure which board is compatable with my cpu. It is a P4 2.4 and about 2 years old it runs at 133mhz but all the new boards seem to run at 400mhz plus will my chip work or do i need to junk the lot?

You multiply your 133Mhz by 4. So you need a board that will support your 533Mhz bus cpu.

The 400 bus board is just a 100Mhz X 4. so thius gives you the lower 400Mhz.

Is it apentium 4 2.4 Ghz northwood, prescot or prescot-celeron D cpu?

I think that is the base speed you are referring to. A four times multiplier would give you a FSB of 533, which for a 2.4 P4 would make sense.

If I am right, it would be a 478 pin socket, for which many motherboards are still available.

You need to confirm precisely which processor you have.

If you use the intel motherboard finder. It can aid you in making a selection. click here

Here are some asus boards, using the finder. I assumed you are using ddr memory. click here

But you MUST double check to see if your selection fits all your criteria.

thank you guys. I have identified my processor on intels site and you are quite right it is a 533mhz fsb. I know whatI need now.

thanks again
