First build O/C adice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all first post in this forum, though I'd start now as I'm just starting to learn how to O/C and I'll probably need help soon. Been reading a lot latley and have gathered all the relevant progs so nearly ready to take the plung.
I've just built my first, booted up last night and all is well info below, not the highest speck but built it on a decent buget. What do you think I should be able to get out of it ?

THERMALTAKE TSUNAMI DREAM
HIPER R 580
ASROCK DUAL 939
4200 DUAL CORE
1 GB CORSAIR XMS 3200 PRO
GIGABYTE G-POWER PRO
BFG 6600 GT O/C
NON DISCIPT HARD DRIVE WANT TO UP GRADE TO A SATA 2 WHEN FUNDS ALLOW.

For a budget you seem to have done well You should be able to OC ya vid card enough for you to notice a difference in performance. If you are a gamer then the best thing to do is get another gig of ram when funds allow

To be honest I don't like that Asrock dual thing for OCing as it can't change the voltage of the CPU, and that kinda limits the OCs. I'm sure you can find something better based on nForce4 ultra around the same price.
