new LGA775 P4s have pins on the mobo instead of the CPU cos intel got tired of customers returning bent pins! 478 are the ones wiht pins on the CPU (i think)

I think Hammm was just making the point that you have the old style Pentium 4 (i.e socket 478) instead of the newer LGA775 socket (pin-less). This means that there won't be many motherboards to pick from because they are no longer being produced.
