  1. Whoa another great deal from newegg.


    You get a feature full Biostar motherboard and a brand new Athlon 64 X2.

    And yes Biostar is actually making good Overclocking boards. This Board is supposed to have DFI like options in its BIOS, and can (according to reviews online) take a 1.9GHz CPU to like 2.9GHz. Thats Crazy and its from Biostar, who'd think?

    The CPU is an OEM Athlon 64 X2 3600+ with 65nm Tech. It is clocked at 1.9GHz and can easily do way more than that. The only con is that it is OEM, you lose warranty options and you don't get a stock cooler. But at least that way you can choose your own, which should be better.

    That is a really good deal, too bad I spend $80 on my Athlon 64 3500+ and ~$40 on my mobo, which is only about $30 less, although with a huge performance increase :( .

    And too bad I spent $99 on my CPU and $70 for my mobo. And both are socket 939 :unch:

    But yeah, Biostar is making pretty good overclocking boards, especially their T-series.
