Yeah what wayne said. The 3200+ won't leave you any room at all to OC really due to high temps.

Your best choice is the 45w 2600+ XP-M

It says 266FSB, but dont pay attention to that, it's basically whatever FSB you want to set it at being their multipliers are unlocked.

With that you will EASILY hit beyond the speeds of the 3200+

When you first get it you simply put it to 200x9 or 10 depending on if it's a 1.8GHz stock or 2GHz stock I forget which, but anyway that's 400FSB right there, but at it's stock speed. Then you start pumping up the multiplier so you're OC'ing only your CPU.

If you want good OC'ing RAM you'd be better off with

PQI Turbos
Patriot XBL
OCZ platinum rev2

http://www.legitreviews.com/article.php?aid=53

Read that so you know how to identify the top OC'ing RAM out there

EDIT: Also, I don't believe they have 256mb 6600GT's so that's either a typo or theres some store out there I dont know of

Also eVGA is the best manufacturer for that setup IMO because their cards have ample room for OC'ing that too

I actually think they did have 256meg 6600GT's on PCI-E or something

I am also looking at a socket A mobo to work with a mobile 2400 or 2500.

It's use would be a small server. This would handle a complex software firewall, web server and FTP and storage for home computers.

I would like it to support RAID, if not i need spots to put in a card for RAID.

Power efficency is a MUST, overclocking would be nice but not a 100% must

I was taking a look at this DFI mobo because I do not want to spend alot, and the chipset is power efficent (same one as my laptop)

http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...anufacture=DFI

Onboard LAN is ok to be on their, but not wanted. Onboard video is also not important, as this computer wont have a screen, and i will jjust VNC into it.
