Is there a website that maintains a list of hardware that can be overclocked easily with good performance and reliability? I mostly want this for using with graphics-intensive programs such as AutoCAD and 3DSMax, but better gaming performance would always be a plus.

Just to be clear, this is for a 'power user', not a gamer.

TomsHardware is a pretty good resource for this kind of thing. The reviews and tests are usually pretty thorough.

This is THE resource. Use Google's parameter to find information about your particular hardware and software. You'll need to d/l Prime95 for overnight tests of stability. You will also need to invest in higher quality memory, motherboards, and a power supply to overlock with stability. Right now Intel's 45nM Core 2 chips are proving very overlockable. – kmarsh Nov 2 '09 at 13:19

I'm a big fan of HardOCP. I don't know another site that stress-tests, say, power supplies so thoroughly.
