I'm considering building a microATX system. The mobos all say they require mPGA478 processors. My question is: Is there a difference between mPGA478 and Socket 478? Ultimately I would like to run a p4 2.8G on an Intel microATX 845GE. Any input would be very helpful.

Nope, they mean the standard Socket478. Socket 478 is an mPGA form factor to begin with, look how small the socket is!

I have a spare couple of p4 chips lying around and a dual core Laptop T4200 2GHZ processor im thinking of building a new machine for my other half, i know when you check its specs online it says it supports pga478 sockets only. If there is no difference between the sockets, does this mean i can use any mpga, ppga, pga or 478 socket i want that supports the 800MHZ fsb of the T4200 if this is the case any recomendations as i want to attempt to overclock it too
