Also, don't get Intel, get AMD they are better at the moment and a nice budget build can be done. (I might have just started a flame bait, but I don't care) mpjesse December 15, 2005 5:55:01 PM I just answered your question in the Asus mobo forum!

There is one 478 board that has pci-e support, but I don't think you will benefit by changing. It's not worth the money. offgreen December 18, 2005 2:39:33 AM Considering that 478 has sockets for pins, and 775 is pins, I'm not sure how someone could mess that up. Detson December 18, 2005 3:57:18 AM Well, if he knew, he wouldn't be asking, would he?

Don't forget, Socket 775 is LGA, so the pins are on the mobo. Socket 478 has then on the chip. HOW COULD SOMEONE MESS THAT UP!!!!!11111 xxsk8er101xx December 19, 2005 1:28:04 PM Whoever told you that is an idiot my thoughts if you wanna keep that chip get a motherboard with a 478 SOCKET (its not a chipset) and find a AGP video card. Otherwise sell the cpu and get the appropriate cpu+motherboard that has what you want. Those are your choices. Of course, you can always forgo the whole thing and not bother.
