I would have to go with DR....  But I'll still overclock when I feel the need... else buy a stock cpu its cheaper, trust me....

i tend to agree.

during the 300mhz celies, software was BEYOND cpu capabilities.

whut i mean is, back in the day, the best Alienware computer wouldn't be able to run the newest game back then at the highest quality graphics.

now a 1.2mhz computer with a geforce 3 card can run Max Payne at max quality without breaking a sweat.

So basically, overclocking is an aid for SOME operations that DO require the extra clock speed. Heavy processing, SETI, RC-5, Cure for Cancer, what have you.

But since I ONLY play games - I think that it's about time that Software catches up to hardware again and surpass it.

well the only tiome that I thing overclocking was a need was when your a poor college student needing to save $200 on a cpu (me).  Or if you have a P4.  those suckers were so expensive.... but now that intel slashed prices by 50% (gee.... can you say mark up?) it kinda lost its point again.

I'm not saying that people WON'T still do it, I'm saying that it's not as financially viable as it was with the Cellie 300s and the P3 700@933.

after my first overclocking experience with an old cirus logic 54xx card i became an addict... next was my celery266@448 now I've oc'd my atlon550->800, my vidcard (old TNT2U, but it still runs CS just fine :) my fsb and memory are all overclocked... basically if i CAN oc something, i will...

not oc'ng would be like buying a porsche and NEVER going over the speed limit.
