Thread Starter 
I've been into computers since about 98, and every year I crave more and more. This past year I put a helluva lot of money into my computer. I enjoy my computer immensely, but I was spending so much for stock prices it's ridiculous. I'm looking into building stuff my self, as I'm buying some cheap PC pieces to put together a family computer for my mother. I have my gaming computer, but I hate when she drives all the way over to my place just to look up something on the internet.

If anyone has any tips on, well, putting stuff in, it would help! I already have a small HD, a 300w PSU and a real basic case. I just need to buy a few more things, and I'll have her computer set up.


Also, I'm still getting into this whole super gaming computer crap. I overclocked my GFX card at 550/420. I'm not sure if that's good but it works for me!

Just tried my GFX card at 565 and it worked! Tried it at 575 earlier and my computer blew up.

I'm still trying to work on my CPU, but I haven't quite figured it out yet and don't think it's going to let me. No idea where my motherboard fits in or anything =(.


EDIT: Now that you saw my rig, what do you think of it? What could I improve on? I'm planning on picking up 2GB of RAM and a new Processor, but I'm not sure which one is more important. (Next paycheck :mellow
