looks good, but an upgrade to a 2500m or 2600m will give u alot more performance. also it would be great to get a better vid card

Not sure about it not working, but it's a pretty well-known fact that Via chipsets are far from the best when it comes to overclocking. nForce 2 would be a much better option. And if you do go the route of nForce 2, you may want to consider some PC3500 or even PC3700 RAM as it should let you run higher FSB. For the motherboard, I've been impressed with my DFI, and heard a lot of good from others, so I'd recommend a DFI nForce 2 Motherboard for good overclockability.

YiffyGriffy is correct. The Via boards don't overclock very well because they don't have AGP/PCI locks, Nforce boards do. I don't know if a mobile will work on that board either. Just look at my specs, I can tell you about a Via board.
