i just decided to build my own pc but i need your advice, wich board do you recommend? i´m planning to build a p4 2.8ghz with 512ddram, mostly for video capture, but, i like pcs to run fast, for exmp, i used to have dell p3 933mhz with 512 sdram and it was a great machine, xp worked flawless, so i want xp to work the same on my new pc. A friend bought a intel board with 2.6 ghz chip and 512 ddram but it seems xp to run sometimes slow, don´t why because he has not many softws installed.

I don´t want to use the pc for games, this is where i want to buy it from:

if i miss anything please let me know.

thanks

Hey.
U want either a 865PE, 865G or 875P based motherboard, since those are the two fastest mobos for P4 intel processors.
865P doesn't support DDR400 (if u use it), and any other motherboards dont support 800mhz FSB.

That board should serve you well. I have an intel d865perl board with the 865pe chipset and it runs my p4 3ghz flawlessly
