Should a mobo POST without memory?

I'm thinking of grabbing a cheap CPU (mobo is LGA775):

No on both of those questions. You won't get a post without either of those crucial components.

The way I'd approach this would be to test every component one at a time in a known good motherboard. If each part works one at a time in there I'd bet your motherboard is dead.
Maybe tomorrow I'll wanna settle down, until tomorrow I'll just keep moving on...
