  1. Hallo, i've had this computer since about late 2005, and i'm wanting to overclock it but i don't know exactly how far i can go with it, i'm not wanting to go overboard just give it abit of a boost.

    AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ 2.2GHz

    And as far as my computer, here's all of the specs Directly from the HP Site.

    i'm currently running on: Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 (build 2600)

    2 Sticks of RAM: 1 Gig DDR2 400Mhz CL3
    = 2 Gigs of Ram.


    Basically i'm wanting to know how far i can take it(i'm only looking at taking it to maybe 2.5 tho) And what settings i have to put in, Also i have upgraded to a 500W Power Supply And my Graphics card is: GeForce 9800 GTX
