Kay, I want to build my own computer, and I don't want another Intel .. shudder ... anyways, before I start buying parts I want to learn a little more about overclocking so I can choose the right CPU, mobo, etc. Anyone point me to a good guide or page like that?

Thanks

This is a good one for DFI mobos and the basic ideas in it apply to all mobos.

Thanks, that was really quick. Also, any recommendations on what cpu to buy to get a really good overclock? I'm looking to spend up to 250$ on a cpu.

I have this one: http://www.monarchcomputer.com...t2/m...gory_Code=amdop and got a 40% OC out of it. Can't say for sure what you'd get but if you want to OC then an Opteron is the way to go. You can see mine in my sig., I'm very proud of this chip.
