    Default soc 478 motherboard with pci express?

    Is there a socket 478 motherboard that supports pci express? I want to get a new motherboard and use all of my old components, especially the P4 3.2 gig cpu.

    Or, will this cpu fit in any other type of board?

    ASUS makes a board that is available in Europe only that does this, extremely hard to find. P4G or something like that. Google European Asus retailers. If you look on the ASUS site, it will give you the correct model number as the one I listed is surely wrong.

    P4GD1 is the board to find for what you want to do.

    I looked that up. That model is a 914P socket . I need a 478. Is this compatable with a 478 cpu?

    If you can't tell the difference between a s478 and t775 pic on that page the nav tree near the top of the page should've rang bells.

    First off, there is only one pic on that page and it is neither a s478 or a t775 so I dont know what the hell your talking about.

    Second, I found this board and I think it will work, what do you think casecutter?

    jjordan27 the previous Asus board (P4GD1) is, in fact, for a socket 478 CPU. Please pay very careful attention cuz I'm only going to explain this once: A chipset and a CPU are two entirely different things!! The people that you are dealing with know far more about what they speak than you give them credit for.
    Antec 900 case (4 120mm and 1 200mm lighted fans + UFO flashing light set + 2 12" and 1 6" Mutant Mods meteor lights) - Aerogate ll thermal controller - Asus M2N-e SLI - AMD 64 X2 AM2 6400+ - Corsair TX650 PSU - MSI 450GTS Cyclone OC - 2 X 2GB Patriot Extreme Performance PC2 6400 RAM - SATA 320 GB Seagate HD, SATA 300GB Maxtor HD and IDE 80 GB Samsung HD - Floppy Drive/Card Reader Combo - LG SuperMulti Lightscribe 18x DVD RW - Plextor PX-716A DVD r/rw - Windows 7 Home Premium 64

    I admit that I know far less than most people in these forums, thats not the why I got pissed though. I am not challenging anyone's tech. knowledge. I just think its rude when someone looks down on me because I dont realize what the numbers he is stating applys to. Im no expert, thats why Im here getting help.

    So what your're saying is that even though I have a P4 3.2 gig cpu in my socket 478 motherboad it doesnt mean I have to get another socket 478 motherboard?
