That depends on the motherboard, if the chipset says X58 or H55 or P55 it won't work as they all won't use LGA 775. For the cooler get a zalman that fits for LGA 775. By the way any latest Core 2 will leave the Pentium D in the dust, why don't you add that to your budget?
 
If I had to replace my motherboard, it would be a great time to bite the bullet and toss out the old Pentium D and get something newer, uses less power, runs cooler, and will be like 3 times faster than that old tired hot running power sucking Pentium D.
Really. You would be a lot happier.

I am positive you can find a new/used motherboard to replace the one you have and still be able to use your existing processor if you wish.

I am also positive it would be well worth your money to replace the processor anyways.
