Well more like spend the money on more up to date stuff at the very least. Otherwise bide your time and keep collecting and maybe you'll find better parts that work together, but dropping money on a processor for that mobo just seams to be a waste.....but that's just my opinion and you know what they say about them ! lol

I appreciate your opinion and encourage it! I've seen motherboards on Craigslist that are fairly cheap but how does a person like me with adequate computer knowledge know what's good, outdated or junk?

A recent board will support DDR3 memory, DDR2 is outdated. Intel sockets 1366 and 1155 are newer too although the 1366 is aging.

The motherboard came out of a Dell Optiplex GX520 or GX620, I looked everywhere on the MB but didn't come up with any numbers that made since so I listed the numbers I found:

DELL
ASSEMBLED IN CHINA
CN-0H8052-13740-57C-00PT
FOXCOM LS-36

Here are the numbers on the Pentium 4 I want to use:

630 SL7Z9 COSTA RICA
3.00GHZ/2M/800/04A
3509A768

When powered up it goes through the boot process all the way to the Windows 7 logo then I get the "BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH"! I've changed the harddrive with a known good one but still does the same exact thing so my next option was changing the processor!
First- probably not the cpu. If the cpu was bad more than likely it would not complete POST.

BSOD at W7 logo is more likely a corrupt file problem. Have you tried booting with some flavor of bootable CD? That would tell you the cpu, gpu and mobo are working. You can find that FC mobo on evil bay for 10-15 bucks. I would not put a lot of money in to this. Here's a good read for you. Socket 775
