    Hi Everyone.....

    I have a P4 2.4GHz (478 pin) processor..... and an ASUS P4VP-MX MOBO. I wanted to change my MOBO as it did not have an 8X AGP slot and it was causing me huge display problems!!!! I went to buy a MOBO.... and retailer told me 478 pin processors are as good as obsolete!!!! they are not available anymore!!! Is this true???
    If yes i would like to change my processor.... and i want to know which one is the best one to go for??? should i go for AMD 64bit??? there are many versions of the processor.... which one should i opt for????PLZ HELP!!!!!

    If you want a mobo for 478, get a 865 or 875.
