does anyone know of a mobo and/or CPU that are good at overclocking, but dont cost too much? the mobo must be able to run a pair of 8800GTS in SLI!
I remember reading a article somewhere (can't remember) about a group that over-clocked a E2160 Allendale to 3.2Ghz on stock cooling and it ran same benchmark scores as a E6750. Theres many other success stories of OCing the E2160 in the Newegg reviews as well. Personally I wouldn't doubt it based on how well these CPU's have been over-clocking. Not to mention the E2160 will only run you $90. Found the article: $89 Pentium Dual Core that Runs at 3.2 GHz | Tom's Hardware Mobo they used in the article was a Gigabyte P35-DS3P (supports SLI) And the Benchmark Results. Pretty good deal if you ask me..
how far do you think i could take it it i gave it a water cooler?
I wouldn't really waste money on water cooling...3.2Ghz is much more than enough power.
