As I know , I tried playing with Command & conquer Generals an old game , it starting to get lag and slow when I have more than 2 alliance or 4 player together.The more unit I create the more slower.Using x2 2.1 Ghz 4000+ back then.1024x768 resolution , and my graphic card gpu not even 10% usage staying below 9%
If it's possible , hoping to know about strategy game which use cpu intensively as a benchmark.

Thank you

Okay Crysis is the one of the hardest games your system can really run....the thing requires basically insane CPU/GPU requirements to be ran at ultra high.

Also, so FedEx Smartpost is the stupidest thing I've ever seen..now my Item shipped out of Lexington KY, which is about 2 and a half hours literally from my house. So instead of shipping the item to me...it goes to FedEx's center in Atlanta, GA...so instead of shipping it to me...they shipped it through my city (literally...it was driven down to GA and you have to take 75 South all the way) to take it 4 hours from me....to bring it right the hell back to me.....

Dragon Age: Origins is a beast of a game on your CPU. I was up to like 51C while playing it.

i was told farcry2 will stress the crap out of it too... i was getting over 200fps on counterstrike though that was with everything maxxed out on my graphics card and everything maxxed out in game with the exception of AA, which was at x2 in game, x4 & x8 dropped me down below 100fps.

It's my first time overclocking, and I was wondering if you could all help me out?

I have the X4 620, and going off of the chart on the first page, would a clock of 3250Mhz be a good goal? Any articles that can help me out on what to do step by step? My google results seem vague - there doesn't seem to be a detailed instructions list.

Essentially, the easiest way to overclock is to go into your bios and press Ctrl+F1 to unlock all the options. Then go into the MIT screen and generally you can leave the voltage on auto and just raise the FSB up slightly. I would raise it from 200 to 220 to start and then run a prime95 or OCCT stress test within Windows to make sure it's stable and then press on from there. Once it becomes unstable, up the voltage 1 bump and see if it's stable then. If not, try giving the NB or HT Link a bump in volts and then check for stability. You essentially do this until it's stable.
