    what? do you want to get a new computer or just a new cpu or just more memory or what ?

    if looking to overclock you have to make sure that your bios on your motherboard will allow you to and that you have adequate cooling so that information needs to be presented...

    tell us your motherboard maker/type/bios revision number as well as cooling in your case... :)

    then people can tell you what to do and how high/low you can go...
     
  3. Motherboard is GA-7ZXE VIA KT133A AGPset ..

    also wanna to know what is the max CPu and Ram can put in for my motherboard?

    your mobo Supports socket A amd duron/athlon 600MHz ~ 1.5GHz and faster processors and Supports up to 1.5GB DRAM

    im not sure i never overclocked any of my PC's yet but from what others have told me it all depends on your PC.all PC's overclock differently and you need lots of cooling.so if you put a 1.5 GHZ processor in there id say you can probally o/c it to about 1.6 - 1.7 GHZ maybe higher but make sure you gots lots of cooling.but i would wait to ask others on this site they all know alot more then i do

    thats a link for your motherboard and shows maximum memory and cpu that you can put into it... could probably put in other cpu's with a bios change but I would contact gigabyte first before doing so...

    as per how much you can overclock it you will need to have a manual or something showing maximum increase to your bus (which is 133 per the info I see on the website) and the increments..

    on my board with air cooling I can go o 144 or so without any problems... I have not clocked higher since I don't want to blow out my components... but it is rock soild @ 144fsb...

    you might want to look around online or in your motherboard manual about the maximum clock speed...

    :)

    btw overclocking voids your warranties if any so don't attempt unless you have some semblance of an idea about what you are doing...

    jake, there is no definite amount that your cpu will overclock to.
    Just increment your fsb in the smallest amounts your bios will allow to find a stable speed. Make sure you have some kind of monitoring software going so you can check your cpu doesn't get too hot.

    A good program to check the stability of your cpu after overclocking is prime 95, which you can get here. Your cpu will get hotter than usual when running this, ie. when running normally at 100% cpu usage my cpu is at 41C but with prime 95 running, temp is up around 45C.
    Good luck and have fun:cool:
