    Traditionally Intel chipsets have been the best overclockers for Intel processors. ATI is about to change that with claims that their boards overclocks much better than Intels i975. ATI's RD 600 chipset should be ready in about a month. ATI's chipset division recently lost Intel as a large, third-party partnery. It looks like ATI is out for revenge with the introduction of the fastest and the most overclockable platform for Conroe.

    How much do you think it will cost for that motherboard?
    I would like to sell my Gateway pc for $450 buy a motherboard, ram, the TT Amour case with 25cm side fan, 70-100+ gigs of harddrive, DVD-RW Drive and a cheaper version of Conroe. that should cost me like $350 after I sell my Gateway than add the cost of the motherboard... not bad for a nice working system. :)

    Update : the ati rd600 will cost $150 retail and support ddr3 sdram overclockable fsb to 1500mhz.

    damm... I am saving up money now, so I have it for when I can find all my pieces in stock.
    Conroe, 2gigs of some good ram :p. This system should last me many years, with some upgrades. :)

    So this thing is gonna be easy to overclock? even for a noob like me?

    It's great to see you man. :toast: Long time no see. Yep Im getting the same thing if money permits, if not I'll be going with the E6300, either way I'll be a happy camper.
