i have a 4200 x2 running at 2.475 and am very happy with it. only thing holding my oc back is my ram. soo id def get the AMD cpu now. However i did noticed when i was lookin that the 4200 was much cheaper than the 4400, that still the case? only diff between 2 is the cache, all tests i have done on everest etc, mine pawns the 4600 even, this is after the oc.

How can RAM hold back your OC on an A64? Just lower the divider.

what do u mean by the divider?

its kingston value ram, running at 440. when i lower the speed to 333 i can then oc it much higher but even with an extra say 150mhz on the cpu the scores in benchmarks and games r much much lower as the memory is slower, so i got it set to the best it can go now with the ram i have.

That shouldnt be the problem as RAM isnt as important on the A64 because of the integrated memory controller. Run the RAM slower than the HTT speed, something like 4:5 (RAM:HTT). There should be options like DDR200, DDR266, DDR333, DDR400, etc.

yeah, use that divider, there should be a very minimal performance hit but you get more clock speed out of it.
