    Not sure I understand u fully, do u have a 2.2 or 1.6?

    to overclock, you need 1.75volts.
    Then, crank that thing up to 2.4MHz
    Sunflower coolers work great.
    Then, if you have decent ram, set your ratio to 3:4 and you are on your way.

    is it fast for games?

    that depends on your video card. Video cards have the higest impact for gaming.

    If you have that kind of money to throw around, then by all means....

    But I certainly wouldn't worry about overclocking it unless you absolutely need the speed. If you are really serious about overclocking, then you should have spent some money on a decent heatsink and fan.

    There are a zillion articles on overclocking, but to overclock the P4, you will have to overclock the FSB.

    Some good P4A 1.6s go to 2.6 (or about 3.0 GHz with LN2). You'll need a voltage mod for your motherboard if BIOS doesn't allow increasing Vcore.

    Is that a typo - PC2100 memory in DDR333 (ie. PC2700) motherboard?
