Unless you can get a 3.0GHz 478-socket real cheap, i.e. less than $100, then no.

Go ahead and upgrade to 775, try to get a 975X chipset as those SHOULD support the new Intel processors, the brand new Conroe! It shows promise, and trust me, it'll blow that 2.4 out of the water, and the best part: It is about the same clock!

After reading up on the compatability of the new Conroe CPU, just wait! Wait until July 23rdish, which is when it is released. Then buy a Conroe-Compatible motherboard. I've found out that very few motherboards, and pricey ones, support Conroe.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
