    I'm building a athlon system and am curious as to what kind of results I should be able to safely get .with like an xp2000+ would safely run at what speed but it might be a 1900+ or a 2100+ I'm just asking for any info or general guidelines co I don't want to fry my cpu . have not bought the cpu I'm trying to find out as much as I can about the limitations before I spend:shoot3:

    Getting a 2000+ to the 2200+ level is generally pretty easy with all the right equipment. ;)

    The motherboard should be ok and if the case has plenty of ventilation then that's a start. A good HSF on the CPU helps as well (Volcano 7+'s are my minimum fitment now) and quality memory. ;)

    You can get some nice Corsair (PC-3200 CL2) for not too incredibly much. EPoX boards are some of the best for overclocking your comp. But remember when OC'ing make sure you have good cooling. Some of the cases you should look at would probably be the new Chenming and/or Antec ones. Not everyone likes them but they have a lot of fan slots...
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.
