well, i meant to say that should i consider a mobo that can be compatible with the new line of procerrosr that are coming out, i dont know what they are. coz i use p4 right now, and its sufficient for me, all i do is internet surfing, watching movies and play some counterstrike. so if i upgrade to a 3600, i dont think i will need to upgrade for a long time.

how much have u overcloked urs, my memory is valueselect, so will i have a hard time overclocking, coz i wanna atleast get it to 3ghz.
