i was thinking of getting this CPU
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600 Brisbane 2.9GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
Is that a good CPU what Motherboards on new egg can support it
Also would it be hard to overclock this CPU to 3.5ghz? good idea or bad?

Also random question

What happens if you buy a new CPU for your motherboard that came with a COMPANY built computer will i havft to do a clean install or something??? can i use the same motherboard for that situation

If you put a motherboard and and CPU into a computer that you bought from like compaq do you need to do anything special to the hardrive or the OS do i need to buy another OS thanks :D
