How much? Overclockers.co.uk have a Duron 800 (multiplier unlocked and
tested to 1GHz), cooler and abit KT7A mobo for STG150. OTOH, I can have a
duron 800 and a gigabyte ZX mobo for IEP150. I currently have a celeron 300
at 450 on an abit BH6 mobo which will run a suitable overclocked celeron at
near 1GHz but I don't see the chip available any more.
