PGA478 Sockets you will not get PCIe. LGA 775 sockets are easy to find with PCIe sockets and some suport dual-core or Hyper-Threaded P4s which are much better, especially if they support Intel 64-Bit (EM64T). Running a 64-bit OS and 64-Bit MAME is really beneficial. I went from playing DDR at 20% to near 100% on 9-Fram skip with 64. Time Crisis runs much better too.
