    I have a Intel® Viiv™ Core™ 2 Quad-Core Q6600 Processor (2.4GHz, 8MB cache, 1066MHz FSB), I understand this can be over-clocked to 3GHz. Can someone point me in the right direction on how to do it. As you can probably tell I have no idea how to go about it! I have a 256MB ATI® Radeon™ HD 2600 XT graphics card in this PC and want some direction as to what graphics card to replace it with.
    Many Thanks

    In the bios you need to change the CPU freq might do it in small steps dont change it by to much. Download a software called OCCT, every time you do a overclock run this app it will push your processor and check to see if the overclock was stable. Also make sure you got good cooling because once the CPU freq start going up so does the heat.

    How much are you looking to spend on a graphics card?
