Hey ppls,
Been getting info from this site for a very long time and thought it's about time I should at least register. Been overclocking pc's for several years now and still classify myself on my L's in the field, although I have had many successful OC builds, I still feel it's been more luck than anything. just built myself a budget gaming PC last week which I'm quite happy with but of course, I do want more outta it for the reason.... I can Here's the specs:

* CoolerMaster CM 690 II Advanced nVidia Edition Case
* GA-990FXA-UD3 Motherboard
* 1090T BE CPU
* Corsair Vengeance 2x2x2x2 (8Gb) DDR3 2000MHz RAM
* Gigabyte 550Ti x2 running in Sli Graphics cards
* Gigabyte 720W Superb Power Supply

Now, the MB requires me to increase the FSB to utilize the ram to it's normal 2000MHz which the board can handle without issue from it's specifications (2000 OC), So theoretically, all I'll need to do is just increase the multiplier for the CPU to suit and perhaps tweak it's voltage a touch. It should be a fairly simple setup to overclock. Just waiting for my H60 to arrive to start messing with it all. But concerning the GFX cards, I have very little experience to what to do with them. So, that's where I want advice from at this point. Anyways, hi to all and thanks for reading.

It runs anything at full HD quality without any lag in full graphics, but I do use the term 'budget' for I know how nuts one can go into a build. I chose AMD for what I see as more bang for my buck when compared to intel builds.
