    am thinking of upgrading my MOBO & Chipset, currently am running a MSI 645-e
    with a P4 2Ghz, RAM is currently at 512Mb (DDR PC2100).

    For a machine that will be primaly used for gaming, net etc what would you
    recommend ? are there any combinations that should be avoided at all costs ?
    Intel or AMD ?

    Will be hanging an ATI 9800 Pro, 80 Gig HD & CD writer off it, am also
    thinking of bumping the RAM up to 1G as well so any recommendation on that
    would be aprechiated.

    Since you have the money I'd get all brand new ram to go with your new
    motherboard to avoid any potential incompadibility issues. Shop at a
    place where you can trust that the brand of ram they sell works
    perfectly with the motherboard you are considering.

    I like to compare and for prices,
    both companies I have ordered from multiple times and the only bad
    experience I had was once I got a part that was defective and died
    after a month of perfectly normal use... but due to the warrenty from
    the company (albatron) I could just send it back and they sent me a
    new one... haven't had a problem since. But eitherway, the defective
    product was the manufacturers fault and not the websites. They both
    have second day shipping free on most things you can buy. The
    motherboard I use is the albatron PX865PE Pro II. Its a very nice
    board, but I'd go for the 875P chipset if you're buying intel based
    mobos now.
