If you're shopping on newegg, perhaps you can get that SLI combo deal with a video card. It might be better than a Biostar motherboard.

XP Home is enough for any home user. XP Pro only has extended networking capabilities. Unless you plan on switching from lan to lan, then I woudn't pay 40-50 extra bucks.
