The m in that doesnt mean mobile.

Its a desktop right?

We will need his motherboard info so I can see how fast of a pentium 4 is supported if any at all.

The mPGA is Micro-Pin Grid Array and the PPGA is called Plastic-Pin Grid Array. Sometimes people say PPGA when referring to any socketed processor form factor.

With fsb 533 I wonder if replacing the cpu is worthwhile the expense. You will get a rather limited benefit.

True, but my friends upgrading from a celeroid, he will feel the difference, although i keep telling him a new gfx card will be better for games but...he wants both.
