I am planning on building a coumputer for gaming. Never built one before. And i am in the dark about motherboards. I plan on getting a P4, 2.8 at least. Money isnt really a factor, so whats the best out there for gaming?

O, and I wouldn't mind having all the bells and whistles!

I like Asus's but they can be pricey. I can't recall ever having a problem with a asus motherboard though.

I have to go with ASUS, SOYO, GIGABYTE, for a motherboard.
Stay far far away from Epox, FIC, GVC........

I just bought an Asus A78NX, n force 2 board, supporting DDR and 8xAGP. 333FSB.

Its an Athlon board, but I always use Athlon chips, they're cheaper.

Supposed to be one of the fastest boards around ATM.

Epox is one of the most stable boards on the market. They are excellent. Gigabyte is also very stable.

On the other hand, Soyo is one of the worst. They are absolutley horrible. Many reputable companies refuse to carry them for this reason. Intel boards are also pretty shoddy.

For gaming, I would recomend a board with the nForce2 chipset. The KT400 just can't beat it. Value and stability-wise, Epox's nForce2 boards are tops. I like the 8RDA+.

P4-wise, I'd go with a solid Gigabyte board.
