Well for cpu you dont want anything beflow a 2.6gig. If you want to overclock then soltek is one of the best stable boards for that.

Oh No!!! you HIjacked my super old and dead thread!!

All I know is get a Socket A MOBO for AMD and the other for Pentium. They should tell you in the description at whatever site your buying it from, and make sure your MOBO can handle up to the speed of your processor. Most newer MOBO's I see usually support at least 3 Ghz. Also certain Motherboards can only handle certain FSB speeds and memory. Your processor doesnt matter as much for a game like HL, a graphics card is more important to play FPS's. Processors are good if you play alot of games with lots of things and people on screen at the same time.
