Help a complete newbie

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have this build, http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Cex2 , plus a 212 evo cpu cooler with arctic silver paste.

The part i need help with is over clocking,which i know next to nothing about.
Im looking to overclock both the gpu and cpu.

You picked a solid build for a "complete newbie"

Change the brand of GPU, go for something more reputable such as Asus, Gigabyte or Sapphire. I would suggest the Gigabyte card as it is the quietest and coolest.

You could save a little money by buying a lower wattage PSU. There is a Seasonic 520 watt PSU which would be better suited for this build.

The case isn't anything special, however that's down to how you want it to look. Just make sure the case you pick has plenty of airflow to keep your goodies cool.
