Only reason people can't overclock is because they expect too much (expect a certain clock speed when 1 person does it) or they don't know what they are doing

In my expirence MIR's not only hardly ever work, but if they do It takes a LONG time to get the money...but like I said I would love to upgrade I just need to get a Motherboard that can get the Q6600 to 3.6 with ease and be cheap too.

Should I keep the 4GB G.SKILL DDR2 1000 or should I save myself $20 and go with the Tracers DDR2 800 2GB and just get another set later?

I found a motherboard that is cheap and looks promising. Can I get anyones opinion on it?

Yeah I dont think that they are coming in stock. It says it was Replaced with the EP35 = \.

But I think the DFI LANPARTY DK P35 should overclock pretty well and its only 129.99 which is still about 60 dollars cheaper then the last board.
