Soon im going after some new ram kingston maybe 2 sticks 256mb 3200.
Plus i wont to grab a 2500-2600 xp-mobile cpu
Then if i want to overclock it how do i go about it and how much can it take, I would be happy with 2.5gh/z 400fsb but the problem is that i have never done anything like this before. I was just going to buy a 3200xp and leave it at that but i herd these mobile cpu's are amazing. So could i get some help please

I wouldn't buy sticks < 512, unless you are getting 'em cheap. Once you get the CPU you should ensure that it has good cooling and just set the FSB to 200 in the bios and the multiplier to 12 to get 2400 Mhz. More, of course, if it can handle it. Don't forget to bump the CPU VCORE to about 1.7V.
