    But would a huge geek misplace an article?

    I'm not so sure.

The only difference is, DELL can now use AMD chips in their computers, because DELL wants to be considered a brand with high end computer stations. DELL made this purchase to allow the use of AMD's brand of chips in their computers. Everything else is going to remain exactly the same. You will still be able to buy Alienware PCs from AMD and the rest of their PC line, for that matter. AMD and DELL are still going to be separate companies.
    I guess I should do more research, just saw it in passing. That's awesome man!

    What games do you play? CS:S by chance?

    I don't have time for games, really. My friend is a big CS fan, but I don't really like the game. I got addicted to WOW for a while, but then just quit cold turkey. Haven't been playing games much since. College has a way of doing that.

    Your stuck with that one line of processors right, it has to be an Intel Core Duo?

    So IMHO that means your stuck, and I dont think you'd be able to overclock at all either.

    And then you'll realize that none of that matters and overclocking is like suping up a front wheel drive economy box.

    @ WBBIRL: Yeah...that would be the hardware limitations. But this is for Apple users who already buy from Apple, but also need Windows XP at full speed...not the emulated crap. This isn't for the Windows XP user who might want to try OS X. Get a Mac Mini if you want to try OS X. But Apple sells very fast PCs, so I don't see the issue, really.

    OR...you can hack a PC with two separate hard drives and install OS X natively:

    http://www.uneasysilence.com/os-x-pr...n-ordinary-pc/

    You can't partition the drive like you can with Apple Boot Camp. You have to have two physically separate drives...each with their own OS [OS X and Windows].

    @ MixmasterNash: Yeah...overclocking is more for bragging rights...and it's lame anyway because once you overclock, you void your warranty. You'll get a few more frames or so per second in games, but it really doesn't make much of a difference.

    Overclocking being pointless and stupid!?!??!??!?!?!??!

    How is takeing my opteron 165 and overclocking it to an Athlon FX-60 lame!!!!!

    The performance difference is astouning for doing nothing more then changing some numbers and investing a few spare hours here and there?????

    It's fun to do and you do get a performance boost, so it's still cool. You have to be careful not to fry your system though.

    You don't have this kind of freedom with a Mac, though...which will take all the interest away from enthusiasts.

    Temperatures are your biggest concern, but I can get the 165 to FX-60 status with no change in Vcore and a slight investment into a better HSF.

    Mac's on the other hand, as you say, are not very OCable... so for that matter I wouldnt own one. That and im more of a tinker person then anything.

    This isn't really for those who like building and toying with computers anyway. It's for Mac users who want to have 100% compatibility on the same computer and also to peak interest of normal Windows users. There really isn't anything like owning a computer that you built with your own hands though.

    Why isn't overclocking possible on a Mac? Isn't just a matter of getting the right BIOS?
