Welcome to the forums....now about the HP, it is not oc able....you would be better off spending the 1000.00 or so and putting one together yourself, that way you get EXACTLY what you want...

The bios are locked from overclocking, get a after market motherboard DFI is a great overclocker, should cost less than $125.00.

No, hp's will not overclock, but you can buy an aftermarket mobo like jrabb suggested, DFI's are really good too.

I would strongly suggest you build the pc yourself, not only would you need a new mobo, you would need better ram and a better powersupply, and oh btw, a new powersupply won't fit in that case so you'll need a new case,and those hp's come with onboard video so you'd need a new video card, etc. etc. And if your worried about being able to build your own pc remember, you'd need all those skills to switch over to the dfi mobo anyway. Build one yourself and you can build it better and cheaper than HP.

Huh? sure it will, I did it to an old gateway case...they aren't like they used to be with those wierd power supplies. And yeah he'd have to get a new vid card, ram...I'm not so sure about that'd tide him over for a while lol.

While this may be true the point still remains that by the time he buys the stuff to make that hp a good pc then he would have bought more than half a new computer and wouldn't need jack off of that hp. Build it yourself, it's the only way to go.
