New build over clocking advice and opinions please?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have just rebuilt my system with the following spec:

AMD Phenom II 965 BE with cooler 7 pro
12gb Crucial Ram 1333mhz
GTX 660 Ti OC
GTX 460 OC (dedicated physx)
Gigabyte 990fxa ud3 MB
Ocz 750w psu

My question are these..firstly is the a good system to keep me up to date for a while?

But mainly can anyone help with the idea of over clocking the CPU through bios, I've tried it with software and wasn't convinced, is it even worth it to get up 3.8ghz? Will I even see any difference?

Any help or opinions will be appreciated

Cheers

Yes, your system is good enough to last next 2-3 years. Although after 1 year or so, you should think about upgrading the processor to something better - at that time.
