I am building a new computer for my dad and I am considering giving him my old system (in sig), but I searched a long time in local shops to find an unlocked Barton 25 and I hate to give it up considering I haven't even OC'd it over 2G yet due to poor cooling.

Would the newer A64 Venice 3200 provide any advantage over the 2500 if I use the XP-120 to cool both? I am flip flopping between whether to give this away or keep it and build the folks a cheaper system. All my folks do is surf por....or check their email. :D :D
