Waste of time for 90% of people. You need a 9800pro or 5900ultra, watercooling or phase cooling and a pentium 4 clocked at 4ghz or A64 @ 2.8ghz(which a few people have and will win easily). The design comp looks good though.

*Sigh*

I'd think from that quote, there may be one prize for those that can get a good o/c from what they have.

I h8 comps like this coz most people wont have a chance in hell of winning. Even me with a fairly good 9700 oc and 2.4ghz barton, I will come about 1,000th just out of the amd guys alone never mind the whole comp!

If they had categories like best 9700pro air cooled oc that would pwn!!! Even though I still wouldn't win...

exactly.
Everyone knows 3dcockstroke is heavily CPU dependent, so unless you have a prometia cooled 3.2 800fsb P4 then you dont have a snowballs chance.

I would much rather spend my time using my r9800pro to actually PLAY GAMES! :eek:
