bro you have to watch the bus speeds nowadays and if you wanna get a dual core processor make sure that the cache is at least 2 megs. i haven't seen one that hasnt had that up to date. as far as motherboards i have to say that dell motherboards for the lower end computers suck. syntax isnt a really good motherboard brand however i owned one and had no problems with it . their technology isnt very up to date however. good brands are of course DFI, GIGABYTE, MSI, ASROCK, CHAINTECH AND ABIT. ASRocks are pretty hard to get but pricewatch has them. they're pretty upgradable cause you can make a socket 754 into a socket 939 for just 40 bucks in most cases. some of their motherboards have both sockets integrated and also have pci express and agp on the motherboard so you can upgrade. as far as video cards i have to go with xfx as my personal favorite.
