I need to replace the MotherBoard of my Pentium 4 CPU. Processor and other accessories are good. Processor is Intel Pentium 4- 3.06 Mhz.(Model 524) and its Bus Speed is 533 MHz. with LGA 775 socket. Earlier it was with a Intel D915GVWB board which is not avialable now. I want to whether this processor work, If I buy a new Motherboard (Eg. Intel DP43BF or DX48BTZ)with LGA 775 socket and higher Bus speed like 1176 with new RAMs. Old MB was burnt by lightning surge came through the fax modem. Thank you inadvance for all valuable advices.

I got a second hand board with Intel 945 chipset and could solve the problem. Thank you every body for your supports and advices.

Similar to my problem, one of my good friends want to find a new motherboard for processor having LGA 775 socket, 800 Bus speed and 3.4 Mhz speed. The processor is Pentium D (945 XL 90b) and named Costerica. Motherboard DG41RQ is available in the market with same socket and bus speed match. But this is not listed under compatible processors in the Intel Web site. Before purchasing one, I would like to get an expert's opinion whether it is compatible to this processor. Thank you for your advices and opinions in advance.
