    I need to build a new computer to be my own personal machine for gaming and school work. I know a good deal about computers and I have some money now to get a new rig going. As of today, I have decided to go with a Pentium 4/ 2.4C GHz 800MHz FSB, 512K Cache, Hyper Threading/Retail for my processor set-up.

    Now, my problem is that I cannot decide between these two mainboards. The Albatron 865PE Pro II or the DFI - LAN Party Pro - 875B.

    Right now I am leaning towards the DFI, but I don't know why. I do not plan on overclocking, but since what I hear about the 2.4C P4's is that they overclock very easy, makes me want to try.

    Any suggestions?

    I think the DFI probably has a better reputation. The 875 chipset > 865 too.
