    Everything looks good. The only real problem at 83 MHz is the hard drive, but you've got a good one. Most all PCI cards handle 41.5 MHz, and most AGP cards can deal with 83 MHz. Some hard drives, like older 5400 rpm Maxtors and Fujitsus will corrupt when the PCI bus goes over spec. But IBM, Western Digital, and Quantum drives are good for O/C. I ran a cheap Western Digital in an 83 MHz Celeron system (366@458) for over 9 months with no problems at all.

    from what I understand, those IBM's are very tolerant of o/c'in, i have a fujitsu and a quantum, both o/c'd similar to that bus speed, no probs. you'll know if there's gonna be a problem cause you'll get errors.
