    I want it to be overclocked as well!

    As usual, OCing is all luck. You could buy a 3.2 and push it to 4.0, while your 2.4 may only to 2.6 and your buddies goes to 3.4.

    But I have heard the 2.4 is a great OCer. And for the price I would say go with that.

    2.4 can in some cases, go to 3.6 on mere air cooling. So, go with the 2.4c if you gonna get the abit board, unlike my intel board.

    The 3.2 has more potential if you can afford better cooling

    Air = 2.4
    Water = 2.6
    Sub-zero = 2.8

    Those are my guidelines, based on a max attainable FSB of 300. The multiplier on each chip permits the best FSB / DDR ratios.
