Awesome, do you know anything about an AMD equivalent to my setup? I don't want to be too biased because of comfort with Intel products when I could get a similar AMD setup that might outpeform this Intel one.

As of now no AMD will out perform the rig you built.

Alright, what would be the equivalent to this setup? Also, I had a friend tell me that AMD CPUs don't last nearly as long as Intel ones do, do you know of any truth to that statement?

Alright, I'll do some research on that and see what the cost differential is then get back to the community about which setup would be better for my uses. Thanks for all the info man Appreciate it.

If you just want to learn about the basics of overclocking without worrying about destroying expensive components, I would suggest getting an old LGA775 rig, and going to town on it.

Alright, that's the one for the P4 chips right? How much do you think it would cost me to put together a system like that?
