I have been reading the overclocking guide, and I was looking at the BIOS for my Motherboard and I am not seeing the ability to edit the speeds.

Here is a review of my motherboard:

http://www.overclockersclub.com/revi...770m_a_review/

After reading it, I am convinced I am better off building a new computer...

Are you gentlemen confidant in the abilities of this processor to take to overclocking?

Ah ... Yes, that mobo isn't good for much. Perhaps a Sandy Brigde build would be better suited for you.
If you have the budget, the i5-2500K is the way to go on a P67 platform.

What do you recommend part wise?

Also, having an Antec 200, should I get a different case? (worried that this case may be to small)

Dont jump to the extremes... You need something that if you screw up it wont cost too much to repair or replace. I recommend either going Core i3 1156 or Phenom II X4. You get something more better and expensive when you know what you're doing.

I think the best Idea would be something durable.. Haha


I have always wanted a computer that could play games with FPS's ABOVE 40 CONSTANTLY.

Once upon a time: I grew up with a POS computer in the middle of nowhere with 56k...... Used to try to play CS... Kinda got kicked.. Alot..

Never found overclocking..

What is your budget ?

The Antec 200 may be sufficient, but I'd recommend a better case while you're at it.
Like the NZXT Phantom if you can afford it. If not, grab a CM 690 II.


Just to cut it all out - you'll need a new CPU and new mobo (obviously) and new DDR3 RAM. If you're happy with your case and want to save some money, your case should do fine without any upgrade.

When we can find the somewhat best components for the price and he doesn't screw up assembling it, I'd say that's a quite decent choice.
The remaining experience may come later.


The build in my rig is my first and only. I assembled it without any help. It only took me a few weeks to get every single component clearified.
But you have a point. I recommend, to you OP, learning all that matters about how to assemble it and handle every component. If you don't know it beforehand, that is.
