Even AMD fanboys like me will tell you, if you want to OC, go Intel. 775 is an Intel pin configuration, which won't work with AMD CPU's. If you want to run the Phenom you need AM2/AM2+.

P.S. Also, if you want to OC an AMD, look for the Black Edition CPU's.
That analogy is perfect actually. If you are a shipper and need to send a ton of merchandise, you don't send one truck at 240MPH barreling down the interstate towards Topeka with that shipment of corn cob lighters.(sorry Kansas)
You hire 4 truckers with trucks to drive the speed limit and get the same payload there with out doubling back on trips and returning each time. Because of road LAWS(watch this word) you cannot exceed a set speed limit.) In CPUs, you cannot exceed Moore's Law, which basically states that eventually CPUs will head a brick wall in which there freq. cannot go any higher, but you can still just put more CPU cores in one die and get around the same effect you would be achieving by rising above Moore's Law.

That - may I add - doesn't affect the performance of the chip unless you use virtualisation or are planning to OC, and you can turn off the errata patch if you don't need it
