and it will be a AMD Athlon64 3000+ Venice and a MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum-54G

Hopefully the CPU is one of those > 50% overclockers, so i can hit the 2.7GHz and get a 4200+ rating :D

ill put down a new 3dmark score to beat, and perhaps something like SuperPI :p

So, in short: what processor do you have on you gaming pc?

Only at 2800MHz though. :p

And I have a P4C 3.0GHz @ 3.3GHz (hopefully gonna go higher) because when I built this, 64bit AMDs weren't out I don't think and plus, I didn't have any experience with AMDs. ;)

I'm looking to go the same route as you, a socket 939 agp solution. And actually want that exact same motherboard. I just think its a shame that they're still pretty expensive seeing that the new nforce 4 mobos are around that price.

I already have a bracket for my water block suited for it though :)

DFI Lanparty 4 Ultra + Winchester 1800 Mhz@ 2400 :thumbsup:
cant you get it higher?

Yep. 2700 is ok, but I can crash it with very heavy CPU use. Thermeltake XP120 on there ... so cooling is adequate, not extreme.

The biggest factor is that I have OCZ EL PC-3200 and that I don't go past 2.8v. If I wanted to run it at 3v ... who knows.

Isn't the AMD speed and P4 speed both mesured in GHz but its still something different...like a FX55 will own a 3.8 and my friends AMD which is older...i think its clock speed is 2.2 GHz but my 3.2 GHz loads slower and stuff (yes i know there are outside factors like RAM and HD type)

The only reason i have a 3.2 instead of some AMD is due to my mobo...a DFI LANPARTY for the P4 and it cost a pretty penny soo i'm not going to change soon
