    I havent been keeping up as much as I use to on the latest mobos and procs...

    so I need some of your suggestions on a new build that I want to put my tax return to :)

    I'm looking into the Athlon 2500+ "Barton" that everyone has been talking about so I can OC it to 3200+ :x:

    and this MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR

    What ya think? :x:

    If I were to buy a new machine, I'd wait a little bit and check out the 64 bit stuff from AMD once it matures some. Give it 3 months or so.

    The 2500's definitely a cheap overclocker, The MSI board seems fine (I have the Asus A7N8X and its great). Just make sure to get some decent PC3200 Memory like Corsair XMS or Kingston Hyper X. Right now mines at an XP 3200 2.28ghz and running super cool and stable, which isn't bad for a 90$ processor.

    What kinda cooling do you have on there? I have a 2500+ as well, and I'm thinking I might do a bit of overclocking soon. I just have stock cooling on right now, and it runs cool enough, but not super-cool.
