Help Needed Overclocking

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi , im kinda new too the whole PC gaming thing, have never overclocked or anything before , would like too know what a good overclock for my system would be , i have a HP Pavillion a1630n - AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 4600+ 2.40 GHz - 4GB DDR2 RAM - 465 watt PSU - NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT 512mb and running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I just notice all my games run very nice , except BFBC2 , only getting from 13 - 25 fps, ive lowered my graphics settings to all low , no AA , no AF , HBAO off , vsync off, my new monitor is only 1360x768, iv done many tweaks but nothing seems to help, so i thought id try this overclocking thing , haha, i use rivatuner to monitor my temps , fps and fan speed during gameplay and i also use Gamebooster 2.3 if that makes a difference , but anyway , any help would be very much appreciated, thk you...

Before you overclock anything, you should consider getting a aftermarket cpu cooler. Even so, you probably wont notice much of a difference from the overclock. if you want better performance you should also get a more powerful video card.
