    Good luck if you want to install OSX on it though, its more difficult generally than on an intel system

    I have an Athlon 64 in my computer and it used to be my friends, we had a 2.0ghz proc running at 2.8, don't worry they are reliable. It's like how Apple says all their sh*t about how they are the best and they never crash or break. Well about 2 months ago our beautiful 24" iMac bit the dust. Hopefully a software error as I could live boot ubuntu. Well enough of my rambling, whats wrong with AMD, I mean intel certainly has a better line on processors right now but it does not mean AMD's are utter sh*t or anything.(nvidia was kicking ass forever in graphics but AMD just made the best card, although I think nvidia has something up their sleeve as usual) Don't listen to others, do your research first because they just might be wrong. But I will say this. Ditch Vista.

    What are you actually saying here? You overclocked an AMD processor, then your iMac broke, then you say to ditch vista? wtf...?
