Is an Overclock Possible? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
Okay guys thanks for the quick responses.

If it's possible to flash my BIOS just to achieve this (for God's sake, I want to overclock for the sake of gaming - GTA IV. It works fine, but I get 20 FPS with a resolution of 1360x768, Low settings, ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT (upgrading to Sapphire 4670 1 GB in about a month)).

If it's possible to safely flash my BIOS to a custom one or something just to increase my FSB, I'd be glad to attempt it. Otherwise, I'd have to wait two years to build my own custom PC.

I have 3 GB RAM, running on XP Home Edition. That's the most XP allows, right?

Well, I don't need any more RAM than I already have. 3 GB seems good enough.

I'll probably just build my own Gaming PC for around $800 next year or so when I save up the money. Thanks guys.
