Question about AMD Athlon XP 2600+, 2.13 GHz (AXDA2600DKV3C) OEM / Unboxed Processor
Would u recommend it. That is would it make a lot of difference and also how much could I overclock it if you recommend my doing so?
Sounds like you should start bumping your FSB speed up a li'l at a time. You should be able to get near 200 without any special mods. It should at least run well into the 180's. If it won't boot, back it down a few MHz. If it won't start, clear your CMOS, and try again at a lower speed that worked. Then, after you find a stable speed, try playing HL on it for awhile to stress it. If HL is unstable, either back off the FSB some more, or start playing around with bumping up your voltages. There's lots of threads discussing that topic. Remember, don't go for the max right off the bat. Try the 170's first, then the 180's. Once you pass the point where it will boot, you'll have to go back and reset the CMOS and reset all those settings again.
