how do you like the aquaris III, and do they make it for AMD socket A (athlon 3000+)? I'd be very interested in that system; hovever, i read a review of the athlon chip (for kix) and here's what i found: "Yes, its multiplier locked, but running at 180 X 13 = 2.345GHz with default voltage and stock heat sink and fan.
Athlon XP 3000+ 180 X 13 = 2.345GHz
Asus A7N8X deluxe, year old pre-2.0 version
512Meg Crucial pc3200 @ 5-2-2-2"
May consider staying with stock everything (including cpu heatsink and fan) and OCing...
