    Hey dude. I saw your original post asking about the gexcube x800 - let us
    know how doom3 fares with it. And by the way, I have the same cpu as you - a
    mobile 2500 doing 2.5ghz, but i have the 9800pro256bit - was thinking of
    getting an x800 also ;)

    It's great that you're interested in learning about hardware and
    overclocking and all and getting a super card, but you've got to know
    this is a silly question.
    An Athlon XP running at 2.5 GHz makes it just about the top
    performing/fastest non 64 bit CPU available. So umm, no the X800 won't
    be wasted.

    If you are interested in just spending all the money that you possibly
    can, I'd say get a 64 bit CPU. I'm waiting on 64 bit until windows
    fully supports it.
    How are you planning on getting the 2500 to 2.5 GHz? What's your
    cooling going to be?

    Already at 2.5 :), just a basic vantec Aeroflow cooler, under 40c load

    Its a Mobile 2500 you see, its running at 1.75 volts at 2.5ghz, thats
    the secret no 1.9 volts to get it their HE HE.
