    I'm not overly knowledgeable on every technology thing they come out weekly, currently im trying to build my friend a pc, he's never had one and really wants to learn them. i found this using pricewatch today

    Advertised Motherboard & CPU Combo Includes:

    Asus P4S800D-X Motherboard – Highly featured ASUS motherboard for Intel Pentium 4 478 Pin Prescott CPUs – SiS 655FX Chipset - 4 DDR400 Slots (Dual Channel memory support) – 5 PCI Slots – 2 IDE and 2 SATA controllers – AGP 8X/4X Slot – 8 USB2.0 – On Board 10/100 LAN and 6-channel Audio - ATX From Factor
    Other ASUS Brand motherboard options are also available below in the shopping cart.

    Intel Pentium 4 478pin CPU (3.0GHz - 800MHz FSB - 1MB L2 Cache)

    Socket 478 Fan & Heatsink

    seems like a pretty good deal right?

    Basically he wants a rig he can play games decently on. Pretty much wants a mirror of my pc which is:
    (this is generated from xfire)
    Manufacturer: Intel
    Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz (2 CPUs)
    Memory: 2046MB RAM
    Hard Drive: 120 GB, 250 GB, 250 GB
    Video Card: Sapphire RADEON X800GT 256mb DDR
    Monitor: Viewsonic 22" CRT
    Sound Card: SB Audigy 4
