    Well, you don't really have many options because:

    1. You cannot usually overclock name brand computers.

    2. You have integrated graphics, not an actual video card...so there is nothing to overclock.

    If someone wants to share their experience with emachines go ahead....but my Compaq was stubborn.

    Ok, and by what right or evidence do you have to support that claim? Maybe if you go do some research...you will find that the fastest systems right now are Intels. Or did your big brother or some of your friends tell you that? Your age is definetely showing, you didn't even have to tell me you were 13...:rolleyes2

    Also......don't get the Soyo if you plan to overclock, you will regret it. The board you want is the Abit NF7-S. And, step up to the 2800+. The 2700 really won't get you anything more than the 2500. It doesn't get good until 2800+ Barton.

    umm, y where u asking about how to over clock ur emachine then if u said u where going to build a new system?

    if ur want to save cash, but want to overclock, use some of the e machines stuff, and buy newer parts.

    intel can still be overcloicked (like my frineds 2.4 to 2.8) .
    u can switch the moterhboard, since i think ematchie mobos wont have overclocking bios options. save ur HD too.

    then, get some new pc 3200 ddr ram to get some good FSB , cause most intel system needs a lot of FSB if ur going to OC>

    hope u have fun

    ok... intel isnt nearly as stable as amd athlons, and can run more applications, why do all the gamers use amds?? hmm... i wonder..... yeah. and amds arelike half the prices of the intel moneyhungry *******s, they maybe the fastst right ow, but, wait, and see....... yeah.

    Right, and that's even a weak overclock....right now the Intel systems are overclocking better than AMD....people are taking 2.4 to 3.6 and above.......mine personally is at a conservative 3.0ghz/1000fsb.

    Also, the best RAM hands down for AMD systems is OCZ EL PC3500 Gold.

    Ok you obviously have no idea what you are talking about.

    Intel systems are not unstable at all, unless you don't know what your doing. And in that case, you'd be screwed with AMD.

    AND.....you are on crack if you think AMD multitasks better. Intels have always been the kings of multi-tasking, and especially so now with Hyperthreading.

    The only thing AMD is good for right now is price. I would build an AMD system for that reason...but I wanted the best.

    Before you say anthing else regarding AMD vs Intel...PLEASE...go do some research and read some reviews.....what you find may surprise you.

    Their upcoming Athlon 64 will be a good processor, but even the AMD guys on my other board are calling it a wasted pile of silicon...the coming Prescott will own it. AMD guys are also recommending Intel setups to people even though they run AMD, after explaining they run AMD because they can afford it. Now doesn't that tell you something?
