    That's a tall order. This involves so many variables, including personal
    preferences, that I'm reluctant to get involved. I'll just say that, among
    the numerous motherboard vendors, Asus is one, but just one, of the top
    manufacturers. I recommend that you look at their products at and focus on their P5B series (about 7) motherboards.

    These boards are socket LGA 775, have the Intel P965/ICH8R chipset, and
    support the Intel Core 2 series of processors. As for price, check the
    Internet for cost and availability, after you decide on the board. I like
    shopping at

    When it comes to video cards, do a search at on what you
    want. That site has as good choices and competitive prices as you can find.

    Nvidia just annouced a line of low-cost DirectX 10 compatible PCI-E video
    cards. Try checking their web site for news. I don't know if they will be
    available soon but I think that would be your best bet.
