Best thing to start O.C on????

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I built a gaming comp and I was satisfied with the moneyorformance ratio. However, I have since then been searching this site and learning of ways I can overclock many things to have better performance for games.
Since I am EXTREME new with all this, What would be the best place to start? I have read that your cpu can hold back your graphics card from better performance, but I have also heard that ram can hold back your processor to........... What is one of the most effective, but a good start with overclocking?

You pretty much got it right there.

Without decent ram you'll struggle to get a good overclock on your cpu but you also need a good overclocking motherboard and probably more than anything a good PSU.

Some graphics cards are held back by a cpu but overclocking will free the bottleneck a fair bit
