New to forum and overclocking

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey i am new to overclocking and i read some of the stickys you guys had, but i am not good with finding what i need to know. I downloaded Rivatuner and looked at it asked for description on most of the changes you can do and i have no idea what i supposed to be changing to over clock my cpu and graphics card. I need some help i bought call of duty 4 and been trying to get it to work good for a couple weeks first i had to buy new video card ati radeon hd2600 pro agp and 2 gb ddr ram and install windows vista.. i know my cpu isnt what its supposed to be for the game but it works just really laggy. AMD Athlon XP 2100+ is my CPU.i have a new cpu and hard drive to put in but they dont fit on this mobo and im waiting to save some money to buy new mobo power supply more mem and case. until then i was gonna see if its possible to overclock to make the game better to play. if anyone can help me or lead me to the direction of help it will be deeply appreciated thanks.

Hi! Fill in your system specs here.

I don't like to be a grammar nazi, but could you tidy up your post a bit - its hard to tell what you're saying.

You want to overclock the CPU in BIOS, not in windows. To overclock the gpu with rivatuner, you go to Driver Settings: customize: system settings.

Also, you should download CoreTemp to monitor your CPU temps.
