    If you are going to be overclocking, don't get a 3Ghz processor, this would defeat the whole purpose.

    Get something low end like the 2.4, clock it up, and get your highest "bang for the buck".

    That's the hardware that he already has.

    On the plus side those intel boards are probably the fastest and most reliable straight outta the box

    but Tier 1 Manufacturers (Abit, ASUS, EPoX, Gigabyte and MSI) that use Intel chipsets do include overclockin' options in most of their's.
    correction tier one MOBOs are GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY ,ASUS,ECS,MSI NITHER EPOX NOR ABIT ARE INCLUDED!!

    On the plus side those intel boards are probably the fastest and most reliable straight outta the box
    acctually GIGAbyte MOBOs are much better than Intel's one
    they have more feature and properities
    intel is just a crap ,all they can is INtel BY intel and peopel think that they are better ..!!

    Somehow I think you missed his point, yes GB has more "properties/settings" you can play around with in order to oc etc.
    But they are not faster at stock speed or as Neil2094 put it, "out of the box". :)

    [B]and features
    Not necessarily, all onboard devices can be had on Intels boards just like any other brand. ;)

    [B]intel is just a crap ,all they can is INtel BY intel and peopel think that they are better..!!
    If used in server environments or other non oc systems then the Intel boards tend to be slightly faster than their competition. Besides if buying a board for oc/tweaking etc there are better brands than GB, but thats just my personal opinion.

    Intel boards crap? Yeah I guess you own many of em'.. :rolleyes2

    Btw did I hear you mention ECS..?

    yea dude ECS is **** just **** and not even to be c ompared to new mobo's omfg i cant believe he said ECS, oh yes he did, thers no way, omg!! ECS are you NUTS?!!? there there worst crap i ever seen!!! (ok enough hate here) but the ram is too slow to overclock and the bus probably isnt syncrouse (1:1) as was the case with early on ddr cheas ass mobo's is there 2:3 or 4:5 memory/cpu so its only ddr 266 so there wont be much overclock room anyway, also the mobo probably doesnt have the settings available like everyone said, by the way what brand is that mobo?

    ok peace out guys:thumb:

    If serious about oc/tweaking then the brands can be limited to Asus, Abit, Epox, Soltek. Maybe Msi to but I ain't go to much knowledge bout them even though I run one myself..

    (lousy 2100 mem = no oc anyways)
