Im considering buying my friends rig off of him for purely OCing and maybe folding, gotta help the cause.
Specs:
1.4 Ghz Athlon MP Palomino
Abit KR7A
768MB 133 Mhz RAM (2.5-3-3)

He wants like $300 for it but Im not sure about that, because Im trying to build my own new computer and $300 is a lot to not spend on it.
Also I was thinking if I do buy it I would have to put more money into to make OC pretty well.
The only reason I really wanna buy it is so I can try and unlock the multiplier.

Not 300... You can get a great Athlon 64 CPU & Mobo for that.

Maybe $150.

Thats what I was thinking.
Like for $300 I would make a great XP/Semperon setup that would OC wayyy better.
I have a few questions because I dont want to start another thread.
Whats the better OC chip, XP or Sempron?
If XP, Mobile or non-Mobile?
Whats the better OC socket A or 754?
Whats the best OC chipset?
I know I heard that the mobiles can OC like a mofo but is the performance up to par with an XP?
Also whichever you choose, XP or Sempron, whats the best chip to OC with out of those two?

The XP is just a remarked Thouroughbred B proc, so I don't know if that will sway your descision but its worth knowing.

What do you mean by remarked T-Bred B proc?
I wasnt into computers that long ago so Im not very knowledgeable about the XP chip.
Thanks though for the info.
