is my pc overclockable?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone

Yes i'am newbie...

i was just wondering if my pc is overclockable and if it is worth doing it???

this is just my gaming machine, where i have played,cod 1,2,modern warfare,all fear games, doom 3, ut2004... but black ops requires more juice... i can load the game and actually play it but it doesn't run smoothly as it should...

you can check my pc specs on my system info page, i know it's and old girl but it's the only one i got so...

thank you very much in advance

well, looking at reviews, your mobo can handle it, just make sure you have good cooling, but you will probably see the biggest difference from upgrading your graphics card

it looks nice, found it on ebay, but considering the fact that i would also need to upgrade ram, i don't think it would be the first thing to do, i 'd rather try and do something with what i got and see how the pc performs and then decide if i really need to upgrade the video card...

if i had the means i'd just go and buy something new but...
