FCPGA->Slot 1 cost around the amount you mentioned.
Adapters that convert from different FCPGA arrays range from $25-100 US. Some are fancier than others and include a heatsink, CPU even etc...
Also, then it comes to the CPU, I tend to avoid the generic products. FYI Asus makes a great adapter. Tough to find in the US though.
Back to the original question...
The difference between PPGA and FCPGA lie in the chip packaging and pin layout. Also, FCPGA runs cooler than PPGA.
To correct what was mentioned above... pin layout is the same between FCPGA and FCPGA2. The difference is in the packaging. FCPGA2 includes a heatspreader.
