Socket 478N Desktop cpu replacement

Hello everyone. I have an old pc and I want to repair it for my little brother! Now I have P4 3.2GHz processor but it's gone.. I want to buy a new processor to fit in this socket. I found on ebay some used P4, Celeron D, but I found core 2 duo mobile cpu. In the description of this said that the core 2 duo has 478N socket.

My question is can I fit a mobile cpu on a desktop pc with the same socket?

Thank you very much.

  1. You can't put the mobile cpu on a desktop pc MB. You have to buy the desktop CPU.
  2. Also, make sure the motherboard supports the CPU you buy, as P4s came in many different types with different FSB speeds.
