Aaah, now it makes sense. I guess I haven't been here long enough to get the common abbreviations

This machine will be on for a good 14 hours a day, sometimes 24 hours a day for several days in a row probably. I won't bother OC'ing it to start with. I can always change my mind, it doesn't cost anything extra to OC it does it? Isn't it just a case of changing a jumper/connector to choose a different multiplier? I know I will want to do it, just not for the first year or so. I want that as a bonus half-upgrade half way through the computers life. I'm already going to be shocked at the stock performance after being laptop-powered for the last 3 years.
