My friend has an eMachines T2895 computer (http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-E-Machines-Desktop-with-Intel-Celeron-Processor-2-8GHz-T2895) and it recently failed.

We need to know what socket his processor is. For some crazy reason he wants to salvage everything he can in the computer and get as little upgraded. If he's happy with it, I'm not going to stand in his way.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :thumbsup:

I see a lot of socket 478 on ebay but I think you would be better off to sell the CPU and get a new Motherboard and CPU.

And the one you see on New Egg did not get very good reviews.

If you got to upgrade the motherboard it would probably be best to upgrade the processor also. Upgrade to a 775 socket and have him pick out a processor in his price range that way you will have more upgradability in the future. If you go with a MB with a 478 socket you kind of stuck with a P4 and will probably be looking to upgrade again really soon.
