What's the proposed use and what's the budget ??

The D975BX2 is an older technology and limits your future CPU and RAM upgrades.

I recently went thru a similar decision process.

I have a case that I like very much. It stays cool and is QUIET. But it's in the BTX format, which altho I like very much, apparently the world didn't like enough to really catch on.

So to keep my current case, I had to choose from kinda older mobos, and can't fit all the best cpus.

In the case described here, I don't quite get why the OP wants to stick with Pentium 4. If you upgrade both mobo and cpu together, there'll be fewer constraints on what will fit.

But in general, I think it's often just fine to go with older/weaker technology. For most users, it really doesn't matter to get the fastest system possible, if the main tasks the computer will do are web-surfing, office tasks, etc.

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?
