Several people have said that. I am going to look into it!

Make that another, the 9xx chips are nice, and I have heard of many people getting the 920 (2.8Ghz) to 4Ghz, so it's rather common. Although, I don't know about doing it on air I'll get water for mine before I try for 4Ghz.



However, if you already plan to buy a Conroe in when it is released, I also recomend to wait. But then, I don't have the money to even consider that, so, if you do, then go for it. But I still haven't seen anything SOLID that the 975 chipset will support Conroe, all I have heard is that a BIOS update is expected......if that doesn't happen, you may be buying a new mobo too.

Considering your plan, I'd buy a x1900xtx and watercool it to tide you over until you get your Conroe. That way, when it's time for your new system, you're taking some killer parts with you. You'd still have a lot of money left over,also. Maybe use it to buy a 21" monitor.
