80 GB Maxtor (7200 rpm) HDD
Imation 48x24x49x CD-RW

Altec Lansing ACS4 5.1
Creative Live Sound Blaster ! Live Digital Entertaintment 5.1
17" Samsung 753dfx (Flatscreen)

It will cost me about U$ 1000

But , if I add U$ 100 more , I can get Pentium 4B 2.53 GHz with the same spec .

Which one should I buy ?

I want my PC to last as long as it can .

Please suggest what motherboard to use .

It really depends on what your planning on using the system for. Stick with the Athlon if your planning on gaming. As for the motherboard question, if your getting an Athlon I would suggest a Motherboard from a quality company like Asus, MSI, Soyo, and etc. with a VIA chip in it. Either the KT333 or the KT400 chipsets would be nice for your Athlon system. However if you do decide on a Pentium, get a motherboard from Intel with the specs and features you want. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
