need to hear some opinions. i recently over clocked my athlon to 1.6ghz(up from 1.5)the reason is that i belive the system is more balenced all-round as it was 1541mhz now up to 1552.50mhz-not a big difference but seems and feels more balenced.
if anyone wants to overclock a CPU I reccommend you increase just the system bus you can increase other factors like DRAM speed AGP speed PCI speed and change voltages etc. but I wouldnt as by doing that you will certainly shorten the life of everything inside ur PC.
oh and for any non-belivers of the superiority of Athlon over Pentium read this!
Mr. Athlon stats: MWIPS:3188 MDIPS:4321 Speed:1541MHz(1.5Ghz)
-as you can see mr pentium gets his arse chomped upon by mr Athlon :-)
as to pentium bing better at games, i found it to be totally faulse.
I ran unreal2 800x600 in 32bit colour and athlon had the same quality in-game as pentium but the only difference was athlon handled it much better when things started kicking off, eg.gunfire,rocket fire,lots of land&enemies etc.
