    Overclocking is were a consumer increases the speed of the processor, graphic card, etc.

    This increases the hardwares performance, but can cause serious damage to the unit due to overheating. This also voids your warranty. Overclocking is not encouraged for Novices.

    I depends on your budget, but if money is not an object than I would go with the process with the highest clockspeed.

    Some good website references to find a processor are:
    www.newegg.com
    www.buyxg.com
    www.zipzoomfly.com
