  1. Im buying this new computer to replace my 1year old one.
    im getting it for a really good price and i was worried that it migth have been oc'ed to hell and back. are there any ways to check for an OC?

    the processor is a amd athlon 64 3200+ 939 but im suspiciuos of an over clock of that as he may have bought a a cheaper version 2800+ and OC'ed it up to a 3200+? i drew to this conclusion as it has a custom cooler on the cpu he said it ran at 50degrees and he has no reciept for it. can i check to see if it really is what it is made out to be?

    Download and run cpu-z.

    Look under processor name. It will say what the cpu actually is. And there is no 939 2800+, 3000+ is as low as 939 cpus go.
    Also, check the htt speed, it should be at 200mhz, if not it's oc'ed.
