That depends what you want to do with it. If its supposed to be XP-based web-browsing machine or something of sorts than its ok.

Not really. This is a better deal:

FIC K8MC51G motherboard, Athlon 64 3200+ 2.2GHz CPU, 512MB DDR RAM, Heat Sink & Fan Combo


But even this isn't all that great of a deal. The old P4 combo is only about $15 ~ $20 cheaper than you could get new components for. e.g.

ECS Geforce6100PM-M2 AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX - $33.00 shipped (after rebate)

1GB DDR2-533 - $22.25 with $1.99 shipping

AMD Sempron 64 3800+ 2.4GHz Socket AM2 - $23.00 plus shipping

- OR -

AMD Sempron X2 2100 - 1.8GHz Socket AM2 - $26.00 plus shipping (dual core CPU for about $35.00)

AMD Socket AM2 Heat Sink & Fan - $7.00 with $1.99 shipping

The only reason to buy an S478 board is to replace a dead one if you cannot afford to upgrade.

Thanks for what I will select as "Best Response"

So what p4 socket type board should I look for, if not 478 ? I mean, how are the newer ones ID'd ?
I have dealt with newegg and Geeks but not starmicro. Where are they located ?
and I Don't go for tying money up for 6 months in rebates...
I was looking at that mobo because processor & RAM already installed and for $35 more, could get the mATX case, power supply, fan & heatsink from same supplier. This is my 1st experience at building, so any guidance is really appreciated. All I can think about is turning it on , hearing pfffftttt, and smelling electrical ! !
As far as usage is concerned, I am not a gamer, just looking for speed while on the WEB and other Home small business usage.
Thanks again.
