    Well, all u need is a "p4" mobo, becuase all have the same procesor socket. U need 2 mind out whether u have ddr dual ddr or sdram. The easiest thing is, as u said 2 take the mobo 2 the comp guy, and ask him about momory.

    Sorry, but P-4 used two different sockets. The older ones had 423 pin sockets. They also have 3 different buss speeds so if your processor is an 800 buss you need a mobo that covers that speed.
