Any one has suggestions on building a system using Pentium 4 parts

Motherboard is my main concern,what suggestions would you have for the top of the line P4 motherboard to match,with 3.4 Extreme CPU
256 agp card 6800 GS
120 GB IDE
Sony DVD/+R

Currently have an 19" Samsung LCD,any suggestions on an upgrade would be appreciated
the only problem I have with current LCD panel is that I get an error that the software for panel is not supported by OS using Windows XP home.
Thanks in Advance

LGA775? Prescott???

by CG IT In reply to Computer

Intel board. 4GB memory DDR2, 4 SATA in RAID 5 PCIe X16.. weak on PCI slots but every other offering is weak on memory slots.

save yourself a headache on AGP and upgrade to PCIe X16. there are any # of cards for like the 7600 GS for around $100.00 USD
