Default diff between socket 478 and 775?

Is there any advantage of running a socket 775 celeron 2.66ghz over a socket 478 celeron 2.66ghz?

yep... there isn't a 775 celeron (to my knoledge) and also "intel.com"

The 775's are specific to the P4's

PS, your first link (the 775 one) is not linking onto any site

There would be some performance gained because of it's extra pins. You also get DDR2 ram, which is expensive but some speed is gained. You might as well go for a cheap P4 as you would get better performance than to have to pay for DDR2.

The 755 one also has a higher voltage.

Basically I'm trying to get my uncles computer to the point where he can do low level video editing. Trying to upgrade Ram, CPU, MB, Psu, DVD burner for under $275.

Though If getting the P4 would be a lot better maybe could get that instead.

I didn't relize I had to use DDR2 with socket 775.

Yeah, get the 775. Unless you consider AMD, but that is a whole 'nother discussion. Let us not get into that in this thread.

The most apparent difference between the two is the physical difference. In Skt 478, the pins are on the chip. In the Skt 775, the pins are on the board. The chip itself has 775 little contacts on it, and it lays on top of those pins. A clamp type deal is then brought down on the processor , clamping it onto the pins. This is suppose to be more efficient, but I think it just so you dont bend the pins on the prcessor. Especially the way Intel packs them. If you lift the little antistatic peice of plastic off of the chip using only one side when opening the container, it very easily bends the pins. That has happened to me numerous times, and i have spent HOURS meticulously bending those pins back in place.

And you dont have to use DDR2 with the 775, it is just an option.

Socket 478 is more expensive and an old design.
LGA775 is cheaper, you can either use DDR or DDR2.
