775 is the newest standard of the two, you should probably go with 775 and get one of the newer pentium 4 cpu's with 2mb cache and 64 bit.

:tazz: Yes you can build yourself an intel pentium 4 with 64 bit instructions. No its not just for businesses lol.

You can get the 64 bit for pentium 4, Xeon and dual core platforms.

The pentium 4 64 bit processors come in 1mb cache and 2mb cache... ;) ;)
