I suggest waiting until you have the proper amount of money before making an allendale rig, having spent all the money on a nice cpu with other components that suck may end up more annoying than having a p4/d with a nice mobo OC'd.

edit- actually even a stock 6300 pwns p4/d. But still, if your going up, go up in style ya know?

If your going cheap on the motherboard, I would try to go for the gigabyte s3/ds3. They arent too expensive. If you can get ahold of a nicer chunk of money than as you know you should probably head to the asus p5b.
