Five bucks says its s478.

If you have a P4 and you're upgrading it, I'll have your old P4.

wat?? so they are all different??
Socket T
LGA 775
Socket 478

I thought two where similar?

Look at this site:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128296
It has Socket T then LGA 775 in paraenthesis
So does that mean that it will work with both??

LGA 775 means it's socket 775, there isn't only two different types of sockets. Use CPU-Z to find out exactly what it is for certain, don't trust online information.
