    You would have to buy new:
    - CPU
    - motherborad (for sure since P3 and P4 have different pinouts)
    - memory (there are some P4 motherboards that do support SDRAM
    but with terrible performance, you would need to get RDRAM
    or DDRAM)
    - computer case with power supply (this is not a must but something
    you are very likely to need because of different power requirement).

    Why don't you check some of the web resources like
    www.tomshardware.com ?
    You will see what to look for so you don't buy a lemon...
