    That would depend on which CPU you was looking at.
    Do you know which CPU series you had?

    Here is a wiki link to CPU sockets.

    Here is another chart that shows the CPU and their respective socket design. - CPU Sockets Chart

    LeHaM - If the socket for the Celeron D is for the CPU you have listed on your computer specs then it is a Socket 775. Since all Core 2 Duo CPUs mount on the Socket 775 platform.

    This was also confirmed by looking up your motherboard's model number at the Gigabyte website. Since it uses the Intel 915P chipset it was easy.

    Now you know how to look it up!

    Are you wanting to upgrade your CPU to a better one?
