www.pricewatch.com is a good start. Also, if your feel confident enough jump on over too www.ocbenchmark.com and get the hacked version of the bios for your board so you can overclock it.
Hope that helps,
Rob

We have the hacked bios in AOAfiles.
It does not have a multiplier control... but there are a few things you can do. The best and fastest you can do:

1 - buy a mobile Barton 2500+ from newegg. It goes for about $100 and is unlocked.
2 - flash to the oc bios to get a few different FSBs. 100, 112, 124, 133, 138, 142, 146. are the important ones.
3 - go to ocinside.de to get the pin trick for all the different multipliers you may want to use, and also to bump the voltage.

Bottom line... it takes some patience, and you won't get high fsb, but you could run a very fast core speed... 2.3-2.6ghz if you have the patience.

Example... Try 18x
@FSB
100 - 1800mhz
112 - 2016
124 - 2232
133 - 2394
138 - 2484
142 - 2556
146 - 2628
All numbers are approximate since I cannot remember the exact FSBs available with the hacked bios.

You should probably try without the pin mod first, and see how it looks... Then apply the pin mod at 18x with a small boost to voltage... when you hit a max, you can settle there, or redo the pin mod for a higher voltage.

BTW, if you just want to run stock... it is a 2400+ (15x133) or 2600+ (16x133) if you can find that particular model.
