Hello, Help Please?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, I have a crappy HP Pavilion Slimline s3420f. I wasn't much of a computer gamer when I bought it, and it worked great for what I was doing back then. I've learned a lot about buying pre-built systems since then, and intend to eventually build my own, but until then I'm stuck with this pc and some minor upgrades that I'm planning in the next couple of weeks. My system currently has a ASUS M2N61-AR (Acacia-GL6E) motherboard, a AMD Athlon 64x2 dual core 5400+ CPU, 4GB of ram (533 MHz DDR2?), a NVidia GeForce 6150LE nForce 430 graphics card, a 160w PSU, integrated sound, and Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit. I am upgrading the graphics card to a Sapphire Radeon HD 4650 low-profile ready card (I also looked at the GeForce 9800 GT low-profile, but the reliability and dependability reviews are not good on this card). I am also upgrading my PSU to 300w, might be overboard, but its cheap, and to Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Still much cheaper than a new pre-built pc or a custom build, which I can't currently afford anyways. I have become hooked on TES Oblivion, The Sims, etc, and I'm tired of the slow and glitchy performance I currently get. My CPU currently runs at 2.8 MHz. Is it possible for me to overclock to at least 3.0 on this system, and what do I need to do it right. If you can point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it. It sure beats trying to search through thousands of posts for the one's that I need. Thank you.
Crappy PC:)
