I am in going to be purchasing a system with an i5 750 in it, what is the overclocking potential of this chip?

Also i am buying a complimenting nVidea 260 series gfx card, what is a good card to overclock that's not too spendy say $100- $200

And what type of Mobo and ram should i choose to complete my build, that can efficiently overclock my parts?


Any input would be appreciated.
-Thanks :)

You can get to 200MHzx20 easiy enough, 4GHz. I couldn't quite get 4.1/4.2 stable, so that's as far as I went.

3DMark06 20,900 @ 3.8GHz using a GTX285. I don't have any benchmarks for 4GHz, only Prime95.

Did you use stock cooling?

stock cooling expect 3.4->3.6ghz stable. but around 3.6 it starts getting a bit warm on stock cooling. ive had mine @ 4.2ghz stock cooling for benchies. but to have it up around that high you would want aftermarked cooling.

my best super pi 1.5 1m is 9.906 btw :D :D :D 

3dmark 05 was just under 30,000 with stock gtx 275

3.8GHz was with a stock cooler, but it's just finished winter here and spring has started, so ambient temps are low. Speeds over this was with an Artic cooler.
