P4 2.4 (800 FSB HT) CPU
MotherBoard.... need recommendation as I will be going for 3.2 CPU in about 6-8 months.
RAM.......also need recommendation on this. 2X512 Kingston PC 3400 is recommended on some sites

G/C : I already have ATI Radeon 9500 Pro.
HD: I have IBM 120GB 7200 rpm. I am thinking about going for 2 SATA drives.

My work is mainly 3D Modelling and Rendering

Any help will be appreciated

Happy Newyear 2004

Welcome to AOA Viper66 and Happy New Year to you!
Conventional wisdom is that OC'd machines are not the best for professional use, where reliability is paramount.

This doesn't mean that you're not allowed to OC your own machine. Just do a "P4 SATA RAID motherboard" search at P4 mobo's are more forgiving when running Dual-channel Memory than finicky AMD boards. Depending on how far you want to OC and how much you need tight RAM timing when overclocking, Kingston PC-3200 may be fine.
When the world will be better.
