After almost purchasing a motherboard and processor for socket 478 I found a p4 processor for socket T that was cheaper than a p4 processor for socket 478. The thing is I have this proprietary dell motherboard which I now can't get to work with my in-win case. So simply put should I go with the lga 775 stuff since it is newer and is the future, or with the socket 478 stuff which has been around for sometime?

Why Intel? Why not AMD?

When I upgrade every 3-4 years I basically get a new everything. I have found that upgrading parts any sooner is a waste of time and money.

My advice is to get stabilized parts. The lastest and greatest almost always has problems (hardware or software) and goes through a bunch of revisions .

Yea but the good amd processors are much more expensive when compared to a pentium 4 prescott.
