    Getting reading to start looking at building a new system, any suggestions on a motherboard? No preference between AMD or Intel, although I'm running an AMD system now. Will be used for gaming, internet, email, schoolwork, etc.

    Go Intel. Get a 2.4 Canterwood and pair it with an Abit IC7 motherboard. Get good fast RAM like Corsair or Geil. 1gb of PC3500 DDR.

    overclock to 3.0ghz easily

    hmm, whats your reason? you dont have to go into it in detail, just wondering.

    i have an amd PC (xp1700+ 512 ddr pc2100) and an intel laptop (mobile 1.8 512 ddr). i like them both. my amd does run hot but thats about it. it performs nicely. my laptop runs games pretty damn well and im glad i bought it. i dont really have a side on this issue :hs:

    That's a great board and chip, RobsMob, and that HSF is obviously killer but for very little money I am pretty sure the 2.4C Intel and the IC7 motherboard will beat it...at stock speeds. Overclocking, its not even close. But the Barton 2500 is cheap.

    Sorry for not coming back, my fucking POS ISP went down again right after I posted...:mad:

    Thanks for all the suggestions, and to answer questions..

    This will be an entirely new machine. I don't really want to spend more than a grand or $1200, but I don't need a monitor or speakers.

    I've got IDE RAID in my current system, and I like the performance, so I'd kind of like to have RAID in the new system too.

    I'm not gonna get the fastest proc available, probaly a couple of steps down, no need to spend the extra money.

    Overclocking ability would be nice, I've overclocked my current (really old now) T-Bird 1.2 to 1.4, but honestly, I don't have time to fuck around with that shit now, so speed out of the box is good.
