paired with the E4300. How does this look? Easy and clean overclock? I'm trying to get to 2.6-2.8 on stock cooling. If I can't overclock easily and with no problems with temps below 48C then I'm just going to grab the amd x2 4600+ and forget about overclocking.

BAD

MSI is not a great over****er.

Solid but not great at overclocker

Get an ASUS or ABIT for overclocking

P5B is good by ASUS

depends on your video cards.....personally I wouldnt get the 775 chipset with an nVidia card. It'll work, but SLI wont (I dont believe, now without hacked drivers).

I haven't really pushed the board yet, but it does offer a decent array of oc features. I can tell you that my e6600 has no trouble at 3.1 Ghz on that board (and I have the standard - non-platinum version). Whether you can get a 4300 that high on the board, I don't know. If the board can handle all the settings the BIOS allows, it will be pretty easy.

Also

Don't even consider overclocking (with reliability) with stock.

No Offense but thats ridiculous.

It could be done but it will not be reliable have a short lifespan and not be worth it when good coolers are 30-40$

I don't believe in SLi. I figure if I dish out 300 for a good graphics card its going to handle all my gaming needs. why would I want to spend 300 for two mediocre cards that are running 8x/8x when I can get a bad ass curb stomping card running at 16x?


So I got someone that says this board is easy to OC with and then a guy, who has probably never used it, saying it sucks.

1:1.

Yeah. I can't wait to actually make my PURCHASE but my ****ty bank has yet to send me my debit card which I've signed up for twice in the past year. How long does it usually take to get a prepaid credit card set up?

----------------------------

Btw I'm just going to grab this processor and mobo combo and keep it all stock. I'm using a Sempron 2200+ @1.5 with a 9800pro and 768mb RAM. I don't think I can tell the difference between an OC'd c2d with 2 gigs of DDR2 ram and a 6600GT OC and the regular set up anyways.

OK, Heres a question. Should I apply for newegg's preferred account and have no payments for six months ? I don't think there are any charges applied so really its like I get a bad ass PC that I have no payments on. which means I'll have extra cash in my pocket till I have to pay for it.
