I fried my ABIT IP35V motherboard overclocking. I found a guy selling a used Asus Rampage Formula for $220. Should I buy it? I want to overclock safely without ruining anything again. The rampage seems mighty good for that.
I recommend you buy an inexpensive board and forget about overclocking. You can pick up an open box for about $40 shipped at newegg. Save for a core i7 upgrade later. I gave up on overclocking awhile back for greater stability. I fried a cpu with too much voltage about a year ago, but I only lost $17. It was a socket 754 turion runnning on a regular desktop board.
