my friend and i decided to build me a computer a while back, and we decided to make the cutoff of buying all the pieces once the best graphics card came out. so obviously i waited for the geforce fx, hoping it would be all that it was hyped up to. agree or not, it just didnt live up to my expectations, so i'm waiting a few weeks and going with the 9800 pro instead. so since thats our new cutoff date for finding the best, i need some advice on my mobo and cpu. should i go with the xp3000+? P4 3.06? unfortunately my friend's a bit useless on mobo and processors, he hasnt kept up, and i'm new to the market. i dont think the 3.2 or hammer are coming out soon enough, so what do u think, what should it be? with an eye first towards performance and only a bit towards the price, what would you get? and a motherboard reccomendation along with the processor is needed too. thanks

I think for gaming the athlonxp is better, but intel is catching up! Read some reviews around the web. This should help make your decision easier. I am surprised no answerd your question sooner. This is a loaded topic.
