If you can, get the Asus P4C800-E DELUXE notice the -E in the version. This board is better then the one you listed.

It has ICH5R vs ICH5 and also has the better Intel CSA gig Lan instead of the 3com.

Thanks guys.. Gonna order it some time next week.. Hopefully it will all go together smoothe as I have never built one before. Only thing I am a bit worried about is thermal paste. Do you put the processor on the motherboard and then spread the paste on it and the heatsink?
