  1. Best:

    Budget (needs BIOS update to support PII 940):

    Eight GBs PC2 8500 @1066MHz. works great with my PII 940 and Vista 64.
  2. I would suggest getting an AM3 board so you can future-proof yourself to some degree. AMD is fantastic in that all their sockets are backwards compatible, something Intel should learn.

    I would recommend an Asus mobo. This one is cheaper, but still a great performer

    For memory my personal favorite has become OCZ, it has been fantastic to me in every way: it overclocks well, is stable, fast run times. AND it is fairly priced (unlike corsair).

    OP mentioned specifically a PII 940. The MB you suggested does not support the AMD PII 940. Nah.
