Dual channel memory is not worth paying much extra for if you are just running Prime95, it will give less than 5% improvement. But then i865 boards are not much more than i848 ones now anyway.

Onboard video is handy, but not really worth paying extra for. If you are actually using the video then a real AGP card is much better, and if you are running a dedicated number cruncher and just want the video for setting the BIOS then a second hand 2Mb PCI card is easy to find for a dollar.
