Hai, I'm new here, and I was simply wondering ... for most processors, why would you overclock it? I have a 2.9 Ghz Pentium 4, and I've never hit anything that even remotely made me think "I need a new processor". Personally, I don't even really know if a processor can limit gaming power, and I thought multitasking was mostly handled by getting more RAM, so I don't see the point of overclocking to 3.6 Ghz or somesuch, because no current programs seem to need, or even benefit, from a speed that high. What am I missing?
