1GHz from stock? Depends on the CPU, and I doubt you'd K8 to 4GHz, that certainly would be a feat.

I would recommend the Xigmatek. The Zalman 9700 is an overrated under performing pretty POS, and I'd expect the Xigmatek to outperform it even though it's almost half the price.

why would i get a new computer. and plus i am not asking for a computer to play that game. just a cooler for the computer i am building. which will out preform a destop for the same price. and i can say i built it and it looks cooler.

i didn't ask for advice on how to play that game or about what i should do to upgrade.
