    i wouldn't pick that board. best to go with a name brand model, such as an intel d865perl or a product from gigabyte or asus. you'd get better performance and features.
    and unless you will only be doing some light computing tasks the celeron you mentioned would provide unsatisfactory performance, particularly in gaming.
