I just joined up from Tucson Arizona. I'm in the process of putting together a new system based on the ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe motherboard with an XP 2500+ (Barton). Being on a budget, I splurged on the motherboard a little so I can upgrade a little as I can later and I got a pair of 256MB DDR400 memory sticks to go along that will support some overclocking over the stock speed of the CPU. I also ended up getting an ASUS ATI 9600SE/TD graphics card. I'm cobbling a system together based on my old PIII/500 system while upgrading my daughters even slower system. I can slide the hard disk, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, monitor, etc. into the new machine and swap a couple things out of her old machine to end up with two machines for only about $450..... I'm not going to overclock the new machine right away, but I'm thinking about the possibilities (having never OC'd before).... Hopefully this forum will help.
