    you still havent given much information, but currently i like the 2.6c's for their clockability but the really need to know your budget and what u goin use it for and need any features like sata onboard sound etc on the mobo

    Just about any mobo based on the 865PE or the slightly superior 875P should be more than fine. There's no point exceeding P4C 2.6ghz unless you're scared of o/c'ing, you should get 3.2ghz with ease.

    13x200=2.6ghz (stock 800FSB)
    13x246=3.2ghz (likely o/c req'ing 985FSB)

    From the above you can see that PC4000 (good eg Adata) should allow you to run in sync (up to 250/1000FSB without o/c'ing the RAM). If you believe you will exceed this you could save some cash by going for PC3200-3500 and running async. 3.6ghz is not unheard of req'ing 13x277 (1108FSB) which I doubt any RAM will stay sync with. How far are you expecting/willing to push? I know you didn't ask about RAM but thought I'd include it as it's an important part of mobo & CPU o/c'ing. Before deciding on your mobo it's best to check out what other people have managed with them as well as reviews where possible.

    I've got the Asus P4P800 with a P4C 2.6Ghz in it.

    It's also got the Adata PC4000 2 sticks of 256mb will cost you just short of £100 and I'd highly recommend it.

    It's running at 1:1 with an fsb of 252 i.e. 2.275Ghz. I think the CPU is maxed out although could be the mobo? Anyway, running mem in synch with CPU gives you a great boost.

    Have just last night put together a new box with an Epox 4PDA2+ (rev 2) and a 2.8Ghz and splashed out on some OCZ PC4000 Dual Channel Gold - gee is that stuff pretty! Will let you know how how far it goes!
