I also like this mobo a lot, it has great integrated graphics and great sound. It has no overclocking features, but i was thinking, does overclocking your cpu really make that big of a difference?

#1 is you are going to play games do not get a board with intergrated graphics, its just a waste of money
#2 overclocking is very affective but if you do it wrong your whole cpu will fry up and not work so i suggest not doing it unless you are a pro

i think you should just get a MSI socket 939 MOBO without graphics or ASUS or gigabtye, ive never heard of the company for the first link

also the motherboard is a MICRO ATX if you weren't aware the MSI one

Yes OC helps a lot and there is no such thing as "great" integrated graphics....integrated graphics just suck no matter what. I know you keep talking about integrated graphics but they are useless becuase you said you want to play games. If you want to play games get a 9600pro, they are as low a 100$ ad i know a lot of people that play counter strike with it.

EHhhhhh, that mobo is a tid pricey. But does it make a big difference to have 256MB that 128MB on the graphics card?
