I decided on p4 2.4c ghz over 2500 barton, since you can overclock 2.4c to 3.0 easily(which is awesome considering 3.0 costs at least $300 and outperforms everything)
Now I need motherboard, I use computer mostly for surfing, gaming, and photoshop.
I need motherboard that performs good(the best), overclocks and is stable.
thanx for replies

I just ordered the same config. I decided to go with an Abit IS7 board. I was choosing between that and the Asus P4P800. I think the Abit has more features and Abit boards are great for overclocking. the IS7 is just like the more expensive IC7-G except for a few things like the Gigibit land and it has 2 SATA ports instead of 4. but for only $108 you get the same performance and most of the features of the IC7-G. Asus boards are also great but I think they cost a bit much for what you get right now. but would recomend the Abit you just have to decide if you want to spend $108 or $188
