Is an Abit IS7-E2 a decent half good board? After my experience with my old P4 when I was without my good machine, and seeing how well it overclocked with some crappy PC133 RAM, a craptastic heatsink, and still using the stock voltage, I'm a bit curious as to what it might be capable of with better conditions. I'm looking to keep this cheap (preferable less than or around $100 including 512MB of some PC2700 RAM), so boards should be around 50-70 bucks at the most.

I had a pretty good run with it, I've got an old ASUS P4B motherboard that I have to adjust the clock settings with DIP switches, but I was able to get it to run 2160MHz still using the default voltage, and it felt like it would do more, but I was maxing the PC133 RAM at 166MHz
I'm planning on donating the system to a friend a little later on down the road when I can get a better video card for it, so I'm wanting ot make it the best I can. That and I've got the overclocking bug again, and seeing as how my Mobile turned out to be a gigant pile of fresh warm poo, I'd like to see how this goes. It's just something about seeing those numbers rise and not having to see money fly out of my wallet...

Well that sucks, but I have yet to even own a car...
That's my true passion, but of course something that costs quite a bit more than computers...and I can barely afford that
