First time overclocking but definately not a first time gamer

26 years old Ive been gaming on FPS games since wolfenstien 3D

Im finally to the point where my game can only get better by either taking performance enhancing drugs...which would do no good. Or overclocking.

Right now i have a 754 Sempron AMD 2600 Which aint bad but im going to upgrade to the clawhammer 754 AMD 64.

Once I get that Ill game with it for a bit untill I can upgrade the cooling and the ram. Than Ill drop the big bucks on a nice graphics card to complement the whole deal.

any suggestions?
anything I should read before I go hacking into my BIOS?
Any suggestions on the processor?
any suggestions on what i should have for dinner tonight?

doom3 or halflife2 anyone?

oh and does anyone know of a lanparty in philadelphia or surrounding areas. My lan friends are apparently getting to old to game all night long.

welcome, and its helps us if you fill out your system specs under USERCP, i think think th upgrade to the clawhammer is a great idea, and for cooling you should go with the Tt big typhoon, unlesss you want a custom water cooling setup, and some good low latency overclocking ram always makes it better! you can read through this and this before u overclock... oh and for dinner..ill give you my favorite!... feel speacial, take some chicken,dice it up into small pieces, fry it in olive oil, and then put it in some vodka sauce(u can get htis at you local grocerie store near the pasta sauce isle) and then put that over some pasta!!!!!!mmmmm delicious! lol enjoy and ask any questions u have about anything!

PS: HL2 is my ****, Doom3 is also fun, but scary with good sound hookup

EDIT: just found this real quick for a lanparty...http://lanparty.meetup.com/groups/ hope it helps
