The high-end AM2 processors like the Athlon X2 5000+ or the FX-62 don't. They're almost maxed out on performance, so you really have no room for overclocking. Like I've always said, go with Intel if you want crazy overclocks.

Core 2 Duo is the way to go for overclocking.

I think the cheapest is about $200. However, Intel is coming out with the "Conroe-L" which is basically Core 2 Duo for those who can't afford the higher-end Conroes.
