none of us mean to bash anything but a 1.7ghz P4 is just too slow to begin with. I remember an old P3 copper(which I still think is awesome) 933mhz processor whoops a P4 Willimatte core 1.5ghz, not just a whoop but a big.... whoopie doopie(with a little bit of exaggeration).

what they are saying is that your setup may not give you much of overclock at all and will hardly notice any performance improvement.. unless you get a nice overclocking board and tweak the mem setting a bit..
