    How fast is it out of the box? I'm building my gilrfriend a computer and this processor is on the way from Newegg and everyone said it was fast and great for overclocking. I have no idea how to overclock and I'm afraid to do it because I wouldn't want to trash the chip, so is it pretty fast stock?

    This is the rest of the setup:

    Asus A8N-SLI
    EVGA Nvidia 6600GT
    Corsair VS 1GB (512x2)
    Seagate SATA HDD's (80GB and 200GB)
    Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card

    Don't do it if you don't know how, I recommend that you read up on amdmb.com

    Yeah I wouldn't even try doing it myself honestly. I've read a lot of great reviews about the processor being very fast out of the box so I'm not worried.

    I was going to go with the 3200+ but I was told that there wasn't a noticeable performance difference between the two. My girlfriend just wanted a budget gaming computer so jumping up to a 3500+ for almost $100 more wasn't worth it to me.

    The Seagate Barraccuda SATA drive is very fast. I have one in a machine at work and it's awesome fast (especially with XFS on it :eek3: ).
