Default LGA 775 , 478, 604 socket processors, whats the difference?

OK, i have a 478 socket processor (1500mhz). I am going to upgrade my mobo (and maybe my processor) but i dont know what the difference is b/w the sockets. What does it all mean? What do i need to look for in a PCI-e mobo to be compatible with my processor?

Sockets 478, 754, 939, LGA 775 are the number of pins that the cpu is required to have in order to fit into the socket. BTW LGA 775 has the "pins" (more like flat contact points) on the socket itself. Thats why all the P4's (usually the prescott core) that use LGA 775 dont have any pins on it.

LGA 775 is the newest and fastest P4

Your MOBO will need to be replaced. The 775 is newer, and your MOBO is 478pin. IF you are gonna upgrade, do this, it is faster and better, and need I mention CHEAPER??


CPU- Athlon64 3500+ 939 Pin (these really dropped in price lately!) ONly $273!!!

MOBO- 939 Good MOBO!!

Now for the Best Option on the Market, do PCI Express, HERE:
