I know the video was fake but thought i would throw it in to show the benefits of overclocking, LOL. The first link was to show you that most people like the Abit motherboards for overclocking. Others can be overclocked but the Abit seems to favor it. I used a DFI MB a while back that let you overclock it in quites a few different areas. It was nice to be able to lock in the video and memory multipliers so they didn't overclock along with the FSB. The second link was there to really explain that Intel CPU's are locked so the only real way is with the front side bus.

I searched ebay looking for a Abit motherboard with a 473 socket on ebay but the search came up with 0 ressults. I dont realy get this socket thing do the numbers have to be exact or do they just gotta be close or somthing?. Im Also having a hard time finding a Abit Motherboard that has pci-express slots an suports DDr1 ram. I think i found one that did suport all that but it was the wrong processor slot. Im having a real hard time here :blink:

thanks :whistling:

Btw how i checked my socket was by looking at the socket my curent motherboard has witch is a
"intel la crosee"

Edit bad news i just seached on ebay for "473 socket" and found nothing 0_o. Im just confused now is intel la crosee the onley motherboard my processor will fit into?.

Ive herd about bottle necking and stuff and i think it may be be possible for my system to bottle neck if i combind this with a 7800Gt or a 7800.

I think bottlenecking is a bad thing :whistling:
