    Ok you have a very top-end system(minus your video card) Why could you possibly need any more speed? By overclocking you run the risk of damaging that beautiful piece of silicon....

    why bother OC'ing an AMD 64 3000?? It already runs twice the speed as most HT P4's,,,it would be overkill in my opinion.

    You use the BIOS configurations to OC your CPU. If you dont know how, dont. If you really want to learn how, talk to some people, do lots of reading. Your CPU is already top of the line so I wouldnt OC right now, your already getting the most out of everything. Wait until its getting older and you new faster, then OC ;) Just wondering, why do you have such a sh!ty videocard in such a Gr3at computer?

    Which Screencard then??

    I want you're opinions here since we are talking screencards which do you prefer Ati Radeon X800 Pro<-(Mine :D ) or Nvidia 6800?

    AMD 64 3000+ Overclocked

    I recently bought An AMD 64 3000+ msi K8N-Neo FSR2-2x pc3200 DDR400
    On the msi board you can up the memory speed and lower the cpu multiplier,
    so far 3.5 Ghz at 235/470 DDR. I am using the stock heatsing and fan on the cpu added 4 fans to the box 2 in 2 out temps stay between 36-52c..And just to let anyone know i have CHEAP ram and can still oc..wounder if better memorey=better clock speeds

    in my last post i put 3.5...not right it is 2.35 ghz oced...STABLE
