Question about EliteGroup P4VXMS (P4VXMS-R) Motherboard
Problem of sound driver
Posted on Apr 04, 2008
You can use any mainboard that supports your CPU and memory, look for a board that has same memory slots, most likely DDR memory and supports the voltage your P4 needs. Most likely, (double check by searching the code on top of the cpu in google or wikipedia), your cpu is a socket 478, code name Willamate. Once you have that, look up motherboard manufacturer websites and search by the socket 478 and make sure the memory is the same type DDR or even older SDRAM. (try Gigabyte.com.tw, MSI.com.tw, DFI.com.tw, ASUS.com)

Hi proenza. you're making good sence! You're D945GCL MB should be able to run 1066 FSB. Not 100% sure you're memory will keep FSB up to 1066.
Here's the trouble though. The Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 will not run on the Intel D945GCL motherboard because it is not supported. Look here at Intel's web site. Supported CPU's.
Intel E6850 specs sheet. http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-Intel-Intel-Core-2-Duo-E6850-Processor-3-0GHz-4MB-Cache-1333MHz-FSB-Conroe-Dual-Core-OEM-Socket-77
Intel E6700 spec sheet. http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-Intel-Core-2-Duo-E6700-2-67Ghz
This CPU is supported by the D945GCL MB.
Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 Processor BX80557E4700 - 2.60GHz.
In order to get 1066MHz (CPU can run at), you'll also need the memory support at 800MHz. The D945GCL MB can only run DDR2-667MHz.
Many people buy a CPU to run MB's specs (1333MHz) just to find the same MB does not support DDR2-1066MHz or DDR2-800MHz. Motherboard Mfg's are lagging. DDR3-1333MHz is out there now to support the 1333 MHz CPU FSB.
I hope this has helped you make a decision proenza.

Yes you can.
Your motherboard is LGA775 socket and supports the folowing processors:
Core2 Duo / Pentium Dual Core (yours) / Pentium D / Pentium 4 / Celeron 4xx series/ Celeron D.
