hmm the Gigabyte GA-G33M-DS2R (Product Specification | Ascent Technology : New Zealand Computer Hardware, New Zealand Computer Software, New Zealand Online Shop, Wellington Computer Hardware, Wellington Computer Software, Wellington Online Shop)

has the sort of specs i want but is it very overclockable? i never plan to get sli so it is kinda useless, and this board is a good price

i tested a similar board the other day and i was fairly impressed given i couldn't access the inside of the case to make any changes to help me out. cure for boredom (e6550)

i haven't looked it up but given gigabyte's naming schemes this would be a couple of models down from what you are looking at. i got a 1GHz overclock with stock volts, cooler, thermal paste and a couple of memory tweaks.

well that looks promising, im not expecting to get much higher than that anyway

(ps me and a mate at school got bored so we nicked the ram out of 3 computers and stuck it in one so it had 4gb ram, took the tech guy about a month to notice since the ones we took the ram from arent used much)
