I think it looks good. Just need a better video card if you plan on playing new games.

Hmm, I thought the multiplier is locked at 10x for AMD64's.

Yeah it is. But I think you can lower it, but can't go higher than 10X. Haven't tweaked the BIOS in awhile so I could be wrong. I hate having to reboot my PC to look up that info though, lol. Too many open windows including homework assignments.

Yeah, it is 10x and you can reduce it. I was reading an article on OC'ing A64's last night. It's a nice guide/test:
