    About a month ago I got some upgrades, A new 400 watt Power supply, A (AGP) BFG 7800 GSOC GPU and, (2x) 1gb RAM sticks for my PC but low and behold the ram does not work for some jacked up reason because I have a DELL.Everthing is compatable from what I read but I have been told that Dell MB's are picky. So... after many over and over attempts at tkaeing it in and out and trying to get it to work... I blew out my processor. My 1yr old son charged at me and I droped a few screws in the case and I guess 1 got behind the processor... then I turned it on not knowing. I want replace the dell motherboard with one that is compatable with what I have and just bought. What do you all think would be the best Pentium 4 motherboard for my needs

    Ok I have:
    My 4600i Dell Mini Atx case
    4-PCI cards
    1- AGP BFG 7800 GSOC
    400 watt Power supply
    2- NCP 1GB PC 3200 DDR 400 Mhz 128x64 HIGH DENSITY SUPPORTS DUAL CHANNEL

    Now I have looked and looked for the best motherboard and am just not sure as I haveent got much motherboard choosing knowledge. Here is a ebay link to the memory listed I got from ebay.

    and here is the ncp website compatabilty link.(PDF file)

    if your current psu is by dell than need a dell motherboard because supposedly the dell psu is wired differently & might fry the non-dell motherboard.
