I'm talking about overclocking the CPU, not the video card.

And yeah you would see a significant difference....but if you overclock the AMD to 3.0ghz it's not too shabby either....and overclock the GPU as well

Ok, I'm going to add the suggested MB and processor to my wish list for a possible upgrade. I haven't even got it built yet and already looking at an upgrade... It wouldn't be anytime soon of course... Besides, it beats the **** out of what I have now for gaming... An old Compaq n800c laptop, P4 2.0ghz w/512MB ram and an ATI mobility Raedon 7500 series vid card... At least I won't be playing games a low settings anymore...
