3000+ is not 3 ghz, but the equivelant in performance to atleast 3 ghz in an intel based system, AMD made the system up to help people choose performance over numbers. also might i suggest the av8 3rd-eye it seems to get really good reviews on overclocking has good onboard audio, and ethernet. however it seems to have trouble apparently with 90nm AMD processors, so be careful, and look for 130nm(i think) manufactured processors. good luck man, i am currently in the same stage you are.
