    I'm shopping around for a motherboard for the new PC I'm building. Any ideas please? Here's the spec I'm looking for:

    -----
    Socket 478 for high-end Pentium 4 Prescott CPU

    FSB 800

    DDR 400 RAM. Max 4GB
    4 x RAM slots
    RAM speed shouldn't drop if I use more than two slots, as it does with some motherboards.

    USB 2.0 sockets

    Firewire socket

    6.1 sound

    5+ PCI slots

    AGP 8x

    2 x P-ATA-133 slots

    2 x S-ATA slots

    Ethernet - upgradeable to wireless networking.

    2 x serial ports

    1x parallel printer port

    USB/Firewire/sound front port connection

    Option in BIOS, so system can boot from USB device (eg external floppy).

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Asus P4P800 Deluxe. All above requirements (except only one serial port) plus Gigabit LAN, Digital Coaxial output, thermal fan control, and a whole host of other things. Wicked board.

    Thanks Messiah for your advice! I'll certainly look into this motherboard. Does it also have an ethernet connection?

    Thanks.
