    Alright, now we're getting somewhere. x86 Family 6 Model 8 Stepping 3 means you have a 133fsb cpu which means you can go up to atleast 933 theoretically. Now we have to make sure that you have a socket processor. If you do we're almost home. All thats left now is to figure out what your bios is and if it is able to handle speeds upwards of 1 ghz.

    Do you think you'd want to switch out the cpu? Its up to you. I think it would be beneficial but it means that you'd have to dish out 100 bucks or so..

    Ok...lets continue with the overclocking process...

    Do you think I would have to buy any extra components if I overclock?

    And, if I have to buy any other extra components, I might as well buy a new processor.

    Thanks.

    Edited - Even if I did buy a new CPU, which kind would I get for $100? That isn't a lot to me, so, if that's the only choice I'll take it.

    I was on ebay and I found a few 933 PIII's a for 85-100 bucks.
    You may be best off buying a new motherboard combo. You can get one at AZZO.com or Mwave.com. CPU, mobo and ram. You may be getting more into the 300.00 range that way but you will also be buying all new hardware that will last you alot longer than just a new PIII CPU.

    Also, in order to overclock you gonna need a new motherboard. I wouldnt recommend this option. If your gonna buy a new mobo you might as well buy a new cpu and ram along with it.

    Dont forget about the contest as well! The grand prize would be right up your alley. The contest isnt over to April 4th and everyone still has a chance.

    First of all, thank you very much.

    Instead of taking the overclocking road, I'll take the new motherboard combo...
    It would help me much more.

    Hehe, I still know that contest isn't over.
    But, it's very unlikely that I would win this and I've never won anything in a contest in my life.

    Well, thanks for all your help sir!

    Farewell.

    Edited - Oh, and I didn't come here for the contest. I came here because it's active, to talk about topics, ask for help when I need it, and help others when they need it. Bye...

    Most people find us because of the advertising of a contest. Thats how I started here 2 years ago. I saw the contest and register and just started posting. I didnt win the contest but I did find a great place to hang out and contribute what I can do a growing community.

    Oh, well I originally found this website because I had Return to Castle Wolfenstein and wanted to tweak it. I saw your forums and your contest and decided to sign up.

    Thanks.
