Hey, I plan on getting a new CPU/mobo combo real soon, I have an idea of what I am going to get, but I want your opinion... I want to get a board/cpu that will be decent for overclocking, but without spending $600

So, I'd really like to hear what you think would be a good choice for a new combo, I'd like it to support 333mhz PC2700 DDR RAM, ATA100, the usual

I was looking @ an ECS K7S6A w/ AthlonXP 1700+ or maybe 1800 or 1900... is there a big difference between the three?

Insights welcome :)
