    Hello guys,

    I want to get some extra speed but a whole new computer is far to much money for me. since then i will need and a new mono and a new memory and a new processor and why not a new video card. Or in other words a whole new computer since my old mobo doesn't supports duo and quad core, PCI-E, ddr2 and so on.
    atm i got this:
    mobo: MSI PM8M2-V
    Processor: Intel Celeron 2.67GHz
    Memory: 1500 ddr dunno what
    VGA: Ati Radaon 9600
    So because it cost to much to buy new stuff I was thinking about overclocking...
    But is my stuff compatible to overclock? And if how far?
    And the most important how do I safely overclock without risk, since I'm totaly new to overclocking and I don't have a clue how it works. I know i have to reset my bios before and check my temperatures and so on but, yeah you don't overclock with that.

    Ty in advantage, Bruin

    Your best better would be to buy a better new CPU. If it s running at 2.67ghz now you will not be able to squeeze much more out of that CPU. It would not be worth the hassle just to get a few more FPS in a game you would hardly notice.
    Also the 9600 is old get new AGP card like a Sapphire Radeon X1950 Pro 512MB AGP the best APG in my opinion.

    upgrading comps always starts with one part that you need and tunrs into a new mobo/vid card/mem dilema.

    overclocking is a lot of trial and error and it's not really that hard. i was a noob but i managed to get decent speeds out of gpu and cpu. if you are buying new stuff your best bet is to join a clockers forum and check out the ideal combo/parts. all of them have noob guides which are easy to follow.

    good luck, have fun and push till you fry something [​IMG]
