Talking to John briefly about his overclocking comments made some things clear to us that many enthusiasts will need to be aware of. When he speaks of "new usage patterns" he is literally talking about transistors on some of new GPUs that are going to be used for the first time when you play DOOM 3 on your video card. So be aware that pushing your GPU MHz may get you different results in DOOM 3 than with other games.

I'm very pleased with my ABIT SiluroFX-5200 in my BP6-P-III/1100E @110Mhz!!!
This card only cost me ~$80 at NewEgg.com
