cut copy and paste it into ur browser and let me know thanks

It's a fair deal, but you could have done a bit better by doint it yourself.

The system is overclockable but I think you're going to be limited because the Nforce 3 150 chipset doesnt have PCI/AGP locks.

That seems about right, because the PCI/AGP speeds will start acting funny anywhere after 215FSB/HTT depending on how sensitive your HDD, Audio and other devices are.

I cant see the memory brand either, but if it's anything decent you shouldnt have a problem getting it up to 215FSB/HTT.

Damn, that's pretty reckless
. I've fried parts myself but never had any fire, just sparks.

Yeah, clawhammers are fine cpus. You get the 1MB extra cache and they overclock quite well.

When you start overclocking it, set a low shutdown temp so your cpu doesnt burn in the process if temps get too high. And dont do big jumps, up voltage .25 or .5 at a time and FSB 5mhz at a time, that way you'll be safer.

For startes read Yiffy's A64 Guide. It will help you understand the new terms that are used with A64 like HTT and how they affect clock speeds and stuff.

If you have any specific questions when you're done reading it ask and I'll be happy to explain it to you.

Read it twice if you have to, it can be a bit confusing.

EDIT: Yes I have a S754 Clawhammer 3200... Just like you

Well CPU/Memory wise you're more than good for any game out there, and that 9800Pro should run the game fine with good settings.
