    If I was to buy a computer from ABS, ViciousPC, or CyberPower, would I still be able to overclock possibly? I want a ready built on because I dont want to spend 200 bucks on XP Full Version. Not only that but I need a new hard drive, mine only has 3 GB left.

    Also, If I was to sell my Mobo, Processor, Graphics card, Ram, Case, disk drive, and Power Supply, how much do you think I would get?

    Thx! :group:

    Not only that, but if I buy the parts and build a new one with my old HD, it says that I should reinstall my OS. The only problem is, I can't replace my OS with my backup disk if I get a new mobo because of some BIOS issues. What will I do???????????????

    and dont forget that 1.1a-1.4a celerons are fcpga2 and wont work on boards that are not designed for tuelatin .13micron cpu's. I've played that game before when replacing a 700celeron, i ended up with a 950 after a big hastle with a bad store that said a 1.1a would work with my old board(they even looked it up,obviously not very well).
    But it was a huge jump since the fsb on the 700 was 66 and 100 on the 950 especially since i had it running at 1096mhz@115fsb which means the memory ran at 115mhz instead of 66mhz.
    I got a new cpu and board now.

    Man this guy just needs a new machine. He should wait a while until he has about $800. Than get the p4c, an 875 mobo, a gig of pc3500 RAM, and like a Sapphire Radeon 9700 PRO. That will kick ass. The HDD sucks, but will do for now. LAter on SATA should be used.

    Cheers
