indeed you will.
that abit board should be a pretty decent overclocker, too.
mine is pretty darn good, i can press my 4200 to 2.85ish stable with a little boost to the voltage.
pretty good for 80 bucks.
may try a dfi or gigabyte next year and see if i can break 1ghz+ overclock.

"I have a Sempron 2800+ overclocked to 2.0GHZ. coupled with my 7900 GT, I can still play most games at max settings without lag."

I wonder what your fps would be in the Rainbow six vegas demo, as its very cpu dependant.

Sounds like your getting good use for a $35 processor though.
