    Hey man, looking at your specs im guesing you would not get much out of ur RAM seeing as it is 133MHz and prob unbranded, the cpu however has got potential, i have never owned a P4 so i dunno much bout them but i have seen people get an increase o about 400/500Mhz with 1.4ghz P4's so there is hope! I had a 9200 once an i couldn't get much out of it, got bout 30mhz core increase and 40 mhz ram increase before i started getting artifacts all over the screen!

    Tips - If overclocking the CPU invest in a high quality cooler to let you get the most out of it.

    To be honest you could do with a complete upgrade but if thats all you got then happy overclocking! let us know how u get on!

    To overclock your videocard I reccomnned Riva Tuner or PowerTools. Both are great overclocking cards for your videocard.

    uhh I wouldnt try it.

    1) your system may or will be real unstable
    2) when you OC you also have to OC your RAM
    3) unless u built it urself u cant OC it (if its a Dell, Gateway,etc)
    4) your CPU probably wont OC very well, not enough for it to be worth it.

    also theres a thread in one of the subjects here thats pinned, with all you need to read about OCing if you dont know how/your a nub on the subject.
