Building very fast PC

For my work, i have to build the fastest single processor system for a reasonable price.
I already have a PROMETIA COOLING SYSTEM (-40°C) AND 2x CORSAIR XMS PC3200 512 MB DDR memory.

As I do not have much experience in overclocking any suggestions,comments and help is welcome.

I was thinking of buying a Asus P4S533 MB (Runs at DDR 400) and a P4 @ 100MHz to overclock up to 133 MHz or more.

I have read at that they have overclocked a P4 1.8 up to 3.2 GHz (with voltage mod = 1.95).
The cooling system of the prometia is much better than the Vapochill so I should at least get these results.

Can I go higher with a P4 2 GHz ? or should I buy a P4 2.5 GHz @ 100MHz and begin from there.

As I am running text based linux for my calculations, a fast graphics card isn't necessary.

Your building it for your work? I wouldn't OVERCLOCK it then. You want it to be as stable as can be and last A LONG time. Once you take a system out of specs there IS NO guaranty that it will stay working like that for a long time.

And WHY RISK your good name to your fellow employee's and Superiors?!?! Also if it's going to be a server of some sort I would recommend getting MORE ram, and a motherboard with a raid setup.

Happy clocking.

EDIT what's up with the spell checker?!?!?!?!
Taking each day as it comes
Grow, learn and OVERCLOCK. Need help?? Ask me.
