Welcome! First things first: go to start, run (or hold the "windows" key and press "R") and type in "dxdiag" minus the quotes of course. This should tell you a little more information than "geforce 2 years old"

CPU-Z is a must get! It will tell you information about your CPU, motherboard and RAM. From such things as voltage, speed, brand and more!

Welcome!

You can learn a lot via the forums here. Once you have in mind what is is you want to overclock such as your video card, CPU, or RAM then post in the appropriate forum. Those who want to help will want to know a few things though. For instance, what is your Operating System, is your video card built in with the motherboard, or what model your CPU is. Sounds difficult to find out at first, but right click on "My Computer" and select properties. Those specs are a good place to start. Another good tool is CPU-Z. An above poster has a link to that already. DX Diag is also fantastic and another poster already mentioned this.

Of course I would get familiar with the inside of computer as well. Knowing your basic parts is invaluable. Might even have model numbers on some of the parts if you need to reference them in the future.

Like I said, identification is the key in starting to OC your computer. After that people on these forums are gurus at walking you through how to OC your computer and to do it safely.

Don't forget to give those who help +rep as well (below their name and Avatar) and they do the same in return. Good luck!

Yea, CPU-Z will help you find make and model numbers for your current hardware, which will allow you to better fill out the specs for your sig. If you want to get into overclocking we'll have to know exactly what hardware you have, mobo, cpu, and ram to better advise you.

Lol all the girls that I know are anything but computer knowledgable lol. Well anyways, yeah you can learn a lot here.
As other said, get CPU-z and it will read your current hardware setup except for the video card. But I would strongly advise to get a slightly newer video card because it's just not going to cut it!
