First DIY comp, need help in selections

I want to build a system around a Thermaltake Armor case and Ati
x1800xt vid
card.  Watercooling is definately an option, and I would
like at least 500-800
GB of hard drive space and 2 Gb DDR2 RAM.  
I'll be sticking with an Intel
Pentium 4 3.2Ghz as my processor.  The
hard drives and RAM arent a problem, I
have lots of research into
those, but a new motherboard is an issue with me as I
have no
knowledge about these.  Any ideas?

If it is your first build, stick clear of water cooling. Just use a
decent copper heatsink instead of the crap Intel one.


I'm so grateful to the USA for their contribution to the war on terror.
After all, if they hadn't funded the IRA for 30 years, we wouldn't know
what terror was.

Yeah, probably go with watercooling instead of air cooling, so I wont
have to
worry about the heat as much.  But I need a motherboard that
can run Intel and
has at least 2 PCI-EX 16 slots.

I am kind of playing around with the same ideas. I found an ASUS
Motherboard that looks promising try googling P5N32-SLI or P5ND2-SLI.
