I want to assemble my own PC with P4 1.8a CPU overclocked to say 2.2-2.3 GHz... Now which all motherbaords would people recommend (not too expensive please) and also what RAM to use. (I would like 512MB ram).
More aboutmotherboard intel
"Not Too Expensive" sounds like a cause for DDR! I recommend the Asus P4S533 board.

I just picked up an epox 4g4a+ today, got my 1.8a runnin at 2.4 as we speak. It has the 845g chipset and runs my ddr333 to.Lots of overclocking possibilities in te bios,raid, usb2.0 etc.

It's old and disconnected(?) but I just bought it and it runs like a dream. Lots of great O/Cing features. There's no need to aim for anything lower than 2.4 because youll hit 2.4 easily with a couple of quick changes.
