    Well from my experience you've got plenty of potential man, I mean my 3200+ barton hits 2.5ghz with the good heatsink, plus your 9800 Pro should hit at least 430/390, I mean the one I used to have in my system ran at 455/400mhz with a VF700Cu. I've been noticing since I got my new 6800GT, more often than not people have my (old) specs when they run Athlon XP's (the 9800 Pro), which is strange since most people know the 6600GT dominates that class, but it's cool that other people see the 9800 Pro as being great too.

    What kind of heatsink did you get? Congrats man, thats a big upgrade :rockout:

    If you want a good overclocking heatsink get a SI-97A, its the best for socket A :toast:

    I've got the Swiftech MCX-462V and I got that overclock with the 92mm Tornado, plus I heard mine's the best. But the SI-97A may be better, I just heard the Swiftech was.

    Ive built computers open air on sheets of plastic, not a good way to run them 24/7 though :wtf:

    Probably could get it thrown together on a plastic cutting board if you have one :D

    Nothing wrong with setting it up on a table with it on a box or on the Static bag with the foam pad under it. .. you'll need to jump the power supply with a wire ..

    Well the power button on a case connects to 2 pins on the motherboard, pressing the button connects the circuit (trips) activating the power supply. Just take a plastic handled screwdriver and touch it to the power button pins to turn it on :toast: (Make sure not to touch the metal part of the screwdriver!)

    :)

    Yeah, read over the motherboard manual a few times before building. Always a good reference and necessary to find out what some things do :toast:
    You cant use SDRAM in a DDR-SDRAM socket, in case you didnt know. My friend put some in his comp and killed the ram :roll:
