Intel says it will support Pentium-D processors and Pentium 4's with HyperThreading: http://www.intel.com/products/chipsets/865g/index.htm

Pentium-D cpus: http://www.intel.com/products/processor/pentium_d/index.htm

Pentium4 HT cpus: click on processor number details http://www.intel.com/products/processor/pentium4/index.htm

I read that much on Intel's site.  However I couldn't find where it told me the exact processors that would work with my board, i.e. with the SPEC number.

All Pentium-D's are possible candidates, and the HT versions of the P4 can be identified by the 800 FSB (except for a few 3.066GHz models)

Pentium-D

You didn't say whether you have a socket 478 or socket LGA 775 motherboard.

"... All Pentium-D's are possible candidates ..." ==> Obviously this is not true if it's a Socket 478 board.

GTKINC --> to fully answer this question we need the exact make/model of your motherboard.

As an example of what CPU's are PROBABLY supported by an 865G board:

Here's a list of the processors supported by the 865G chipset on Intel's Socket 478 D865GBF board:

Here's a list of the processors supported by the 865G chipset on Intel's Socket 775 D865GSA board:

Yep - I realized the socket info was needed at the end, without thinking about what I had just typed at the beginning, before the revelation (I should have edited it while I had the chance, but I got busy at work).

Here's the complete list of the processors that board can accept:

Note that the newer processors (later P-IV's or Celeron-D's) require later BIOS versions.   So if you plan on using the board with one of those you MAY require an older CPU temporarily to flash the BIOS with.
