Hey overclocking.net
I'm been introduced recently to overclocking thanks to someone on the official Oblivion forums (do you post here werrd?) who gave me a link to a guide to OC a A64. Since then, I've been surfing guides, faqs, and forums to learn more about it.

I bought my PC in June, and unfortunatly, I didn't know much about computers then, and the shops here in Jakarta don't have many choices for components, and they're more or less overpriced. So I bought my PC with quite a few mistakes:
-a A64 socket 754 mobo&CPU instead of socket 939 (dual channel)
-average RAM
-a GPU that won't last long (which was also vastly overpriced)
-letting the guy install the PC, which means that I don't know if he put some thermal paste or whatever.

And last of all, I bought some crappy speakers. I told the guy I didn't mind average speakers, and he said they had "very average" speakers. So I go home, and what do I get? 2 tiny things 6cm wide and 11cm tall, that don't even have switches or volume control.....sigh...
