    Default Mobo Recommendation

    Looking to build a system in the next month or so. Will run XP Professional with some decent gaming and software development capability. Happy with either Intel or AMD. Any recommendations for what is reasonably new and good out there?

    Thanks for the input everybody. I researched the boards (and peripherals) which, in turn, led me to other boards and peripherals. I finally settled on the following from Newegg:

    and this processor to go with it:

    I also went with the 8800GTS, Antec case, and 2GB of 800 MHz RAM as you suggested, Maverick.
