Hi I have just purchased a CPU and its an Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3GHz/1M/800 SL8HZ Skt 775.Not being technically minded I would like to ask what do all the numbers stand for? Can any one recommend a good motherboard that i can put this CPU on.I am just in the process of building up a desktop pc.
Thanks

Re finding a motherboard, ram, etc., http://www newegg.com is one of the easier sites to find parts by category or type...i.e. motherboards, intel, socket 775....the list will be nearly endless. Filter the list by 'best rating'.

You have a P-4 hyperthread, socket 775. As far as motherboards go, the prior poster listed NEW EGG, good choice. Good motherboards to look at, MSI and or Gigabyte in socket 775. Use at least 1 GB of ram, preferably 2 or even 3 and you have a start to a very decent hook up. Good luck and have fun!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
