I thinking of buliding a cheap but fast computer and I don't want to spend a lot on a procsessor yet and I want one that I can change the multiplers and I keep hearing the mobile procsessors overclock like real good.

this is what your looking for then, go with a mobile 2500+, default fsb is 133/266 and voltage is 1.45v. there's plenty of room for overclocking and with your ram you should be able to reach 2.5-2.6ghz.

I am running mine at 2.45 ghz or somewhere just below 2.5 I am not sure right now. They are awesome.

I wish I had new more about the moblie Procsessor before I bought my Barton2800 witch is locked,I was hearing they would'nt work on the destop computer ,then I heard if you had the mother board I have they would'nt work.I just bought a Barton mobile 2600 and I had all my multiplers back that I can change now.Right off the bat I clocked it at 200x11.5 2.3gig at 1.65v and then I clocked it to 12x200 at 1.7v and then I went to 12.5 x200 2.5gig at 1.75v then I ran it a while at 210x12.5 2.63gig with the voltage as high as it would go,I think it was 1.8v,but it would'nt make it though all my benchmarks,it would drop back to windows. I wish had a abit motherboard that lets you clock the voltage higher so I could see how far it would clock to.Oh well I am keeping at 2.5Gig 1.75v and my temperture on my core runs cooler than my Barton2800 did,around 40c and it is very stable at this speed.Not bad for a $95 procsessor,$60 cheaper then I paid for my locked Barton2800 .

I think I have found the best setting that gives me the best performace at the lower volt with out setting it to the max,215x11.5@2473 at 1.725v and my temperture stays around 45c at full load.

I have my xp2500-m running at 2.4Ghz for that extra bit of cpu power! :)
