    Hey guys, This is pretty 56k Friendly.

    As you know, Mattesca and I have decided we wanted to build him a really nice system. We wanted it to overclock very well and to get some great results.

    Specs:
    AMD Mobile 2400XP 35watt CPU
    Abit NF7-S Rev.2
    OCZ 2X256Mb PC3200 2-2-2-5
    120GB WD HDD
    Thermalright SP-97
    800watt Speaker System
    Soundblaster Live 5.1
    17' NEC LCD
    Nvidia GeForce FX5600 256MB
    52X32X52 CD-RW
    Antec 400watt PSU
    Chieftec black w/ silver bezel Matrix Series
    5 Blue LED 80mm fans.

    Parts in red are the new parts we bought, the other parts we got from his old PC.

    At first we went with the Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe, but that board just wouldnt work well with the Mobile CPU, so we sent it back and got the Abit, which works amazingly.

    Pics

    Heres his Setup

    Without wanting to seem a little picky, can you explain why the "after" tests were run on Dec 31, 2003?
