    Thinking about asrock sata 2 and x2 3800 any thoughts

    Hi thinking about upgrading to asrock dual sata2 and 3800 x2 any of you out there running this combination and if so what sort of overclocks are you getting. Really need an AGP slot as new graphics card is out of the question cost wise. Thanks for your input.

    yep should work well, as for overclocking take a look over at OC workbench, they have a good ASRock forum here should give you an idea of the clocks people have got with that combo.
