    OK, I'm about to build a computer. I've chosen all of the parts for it (all I need is cold hard cash hehe) Nooooow, I need to know if anyone has a clue as to how much I could overclock an Athlon 1700+ XP processor on an Asus A7V133 Mobo. I am using standard fan cooling (see comp specs below), and a great power supply. Any ideas on how much I can jack this thing up? Please help :( I don't want to fry anything by accident (I'd be careful and OC bit by bit but I thought I'd see if anyone knew on these forums first). This includes how much to up the FSB as well as the multiplier.

    Comp specs:
    Athlon 1700+ XP Processor
    Asus A7V133 Mobo
    TTGI (Made by Enermax) 420 Watt Dual Fan Power Supply
    512 MB Crucial SDRAM (PC 133)
    Maxtor 40 GB 7200RPM HD
    Asus 52 speed CD-ROM
    Dynatron Processor Heatsink w/ Fan (microfin-technology)
    80mm Rear Fan (Can't remember brand, but comes with the case)
    Lian Li PC-65 Case w/ Window (hehe :D)
    Soundblaster Audigy X-Gamer
    D-Link Ethernet Card
    Visiontek GeForce4 MX440 w/ Blorb
    Dual Fans in front of HD Bays

    That's all I really can remember, I'm very tired right now :p
    If you have any questions about something I might have missed, just ask me! :D Thank you.

    no, but

    if you're buying such a nice (expensive) system, don't ruin it with that crappy GeForce4 MX. Do a little research and you'll see the GF4MX is really a GF2 on steriods and has little in common with the GF3's or GF4's.

    evilhomer speaks the truth!

    don't waste your $ on a crappy card like that. the mx line sucks. go for the geforce4 ti4600. it's expensive, but u won't have to upgrade your vid card for several years.

    yeah, yeah, yeah, I've heard it already
    but that's not the question guys :(
    my vid card won't be a problem, it is a good quality one (I knew about the G4 MX's being pumped up G2's)

    Why are you using pc133 memory,don't you mean ddr pc2100 memory as your AMD xp chipset and motherboard both use ddr pc2100 memory you should use the same to get the most out if your system.
    I take it you just made an error and do have ddr memory as the memory you mentioned only runs at 133mhz and ddr pc 2100 run at 266mhz.
