well this board wont OC and i doubt my new one will, a friend just got a new s775 board and is giving me his.

its an ECS board for starters add to that its PT8080 chipset and it supports AGP/PCIe with DDR/DDR2 he used it as an upgrade and will sell me his PentiumD 940 with that mobo for 20 bucks and i figured the board will let me upgrade to DDR2 and PCIe when i can afford to and then get a better board

Even if you don't overclock, go for it.

Smithfields are not as good as Preslers in a couple of factor, so $40 for a good improvement is not bad.
