    I need a motherboard that supports the following:

    Pentium 4 from 1.8 to around 2.4.
    Lots of PCI slots
    USB 2 (not essential, but I do need USB)
    Lots of RAM slots

    Anyone?

    Thanks.

    PS: Dont tell me to get a Athlon XP.

    Check out the link I've provided since you want go with a Pentium 4 which is fine. As far as manufacturers go I would suggest Intel boards mind you they got a lot of the goodies as other boards but they are very stable, also Asus is good. I would also suggest that you get a board with an Intel chipset for a good solid, stable system.

    The chart I link to is most comparing the various Intel chipsets and the chipset on ur board Hipster is on that chart.
