Do you mean should you buy a Dell 4550 or custom build a system?

Or do you want to know if your system is better then the Dell 4550?

Sorry I aquired a third board for free and gonna let one go. Either the soyo p4x400 or the dell 4550 that my son has. I got a asus p4p800-vm for free so just gonna buy some dual channel ddr for it and put my cpu in it for now.

Will the motherboard even fit into the case? Check the size and I/O panel at the back to see if it'll even work.

The front LEDs, switches, and USB may need to be re-wired to get then to connect.

The Soyo is the nicer board and offers more features and flexibility but I don't know if it'd be worth it to swap it out. The Soyo has 6 channel audio, supports PC3200 RAM, AGP 8X, allows overclocking, amoung other things but depending on what else you plan tpo use in it these features/benefits may not be used. Windows will definitely have a fit when you move it from the Intel based board to a VIA chipset board.
