    I have used many MSI boards. I currently am using the MSI Neo2 875p board.

    This is a very good board and MSI is very good about supporting it. It has great features for OCing the FSB, voltages, etc. I would say that most P4 boards with the 875p chipset is worth getting. Stick to MSI and ASUS, IMHO.

    Also for chips, the 2.4c (Northwood) is very good for OCing, I currently have the 2.8e (Prescott) and am experimenting with OCing. I have it up to 2.9... Go with a Northwood as the Prescott provides 1M of cache (instead of 512k) which doesn't provide much in performance, and the prescott runs much hotter.

    Um sure, Prescott is the last core/P4 you want to own if your overclocking!!

    You should just go read tons of reviews for P4 mobos and Im sure you can learn even more and answer your question in a more forfilling way.
