PPGA478 - Mobile socket 478 - also called Socket M

mPGA478b - Desktop socket 478

Far as building a system around one of these, forget it. Both are so outdated, that it will be hard to find any motherboard or CPU for it.

Don't give up on finding a motherboard. Newegg only has one, but I checked the Biostar web site and they had several. Also you might find some on eBay and that miniITX Web site I can't think of offhand. When I find it I will post.

The main thing is to be sure the CPU is compatible. Contact the mobo manufacturer since I've seen posts where CPUs that were not listed did work.
