Old Old Build, wanna get some power from it!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I am new to overclocking, but I am a gamer with an OLD setup & no money to spend on an upgrade. So I wanna overclock.

suggestions?

Well, unfortunately, that board will not have any options for overclocking. There are programs to software OC, but they typically don't yield very good results. Sorry, friend.

you COULD buy an E2180..paired with a nice DS3L you could hit 3.00ghz pretty easy. Ram is cheap now too.
E2180

i want to upgrade, even to the most minor of new processors, but even 150 bucks is wayyyy too much for me to spend. I literally have nothing.

And thank you, with a 12gb flash drive used for readyboost on top of my build, vista isn't bad.

You could still OC your graphics card which could make quite the difference.
