I've been doing it for the past two weeks everyday ;-) hehe
How long does it take for newegg to ship(to NY)? 3-4 days? longer?

I'm not 100% sure with the RAM but PCU should be compatible with the mobo i have right now cuz its a p4(just like the 1 i have right now) and they didn'y say anything on newegg so I guess it should be ok.

I am not an expert. But based on the fact that they are one of the if not the top heat producing processers on the market, they are probably not one of the best to OC. Granted, they may be great elsewise, but you'll need to invest in a pretty insane HSF.

I'm planing to OC it slightly because its fast as it is(3.0GHz). And you think there won't be a problem with compatibility (ram+mobo)? I'd be grateful if anyone could help me out here. Thanks.
