Hello to you all.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,
By way of introduction - I am 53yrs old, have built two 'hispec' computers (a few years ago) and I am an avid flight simmer but know nothing of OC.
I read about Overclock.net on one of the many flight sim forums I am a member of and thought I would give you guys a look to see (a) - how difficult it would be to increase the speed of my machine and (b) - whether it is actually feasible with my current configuration.

I have read the 'newbie guide which I found very useful but I am sure there will be many questions later on if I decide to go down the OC route.

My computer was bought in April 2009, pre built as a gaming computer and is used only for my flight sim. Being a now retired UK police officer and living in Spain, I am on a meagre police pension so will not be looking at replacing the computer for a few years so any advice you experts out there can pass my way will be much appreciated.

Gary
