Damn that thing'll be fast! Just tell me how nice the mobo is cos thats the one I want! You could get away with just having PC2700 but that just means it won't OC as well!

1 problem it will generate alot of heat so I would suggest getting more 80mm fans!

Unless you're planning on putting that second heatsink in another system, you don't need two of them.


That's quite a beast and should overclock just fine

Iam from the UK as well!!! No one really knows how good the XP 2400+ is so I would give it a little while, read more reviews and then make your mind up! But you have probably made it up already and want all that AMD power!!!! Iam I right?!!! lol!!! Don't worry we all make up our minds and then ask people!!! Its what us brits do!!! lol!!!!
