If I remember correctly, the only intel chip that used the socket 479 is the Pentium M. You are thinking of Socket M and P, both of which are 478 Pins. The additional requirement is that your motherboard support the core 2 duo in the bios, or there is an available bios update to enable support. If you have the exact model of the mainboard we can find more information on processor support.

A Core 2 Duo is a socket 775 - and not all motherboards that have socket 775's can support a Core 2 Duo. Be careful to check for this if you're contemplating getting one.
