    If it's a P4 then it'll likely be an old socket 423 but if it's a Celeron then it'll likely be a socket 478 (CPU's can't be swapped between these two sockets).

    If its a celeron, it will be incompatable with the newer motherboards due to voltage requirements.

    I think that ya gettin' confused with the older PIII based Celerons (Coppermine vs. Tualatin) and not the current P4 based ones.
