my xp2000 is running at 1.67ghz, at least thats what it says under properties under my computer. after looking at people's signatures while browsing several forums in their pc descriptions many of them have lower athlon's running faster than mine. for example an xp1600 running at around 1.9 ghrz. im sure this is due to overclocking, and i really dont know how to do that. but i feel like i should be getting at least a little better performance out of my processor. i guess the athlon numbers confuse me, xp1700, 1800, 2100 etc as opposed to pentium 4's just having their actual speed. so anyways if any of you experts can clear some stuff up about all this i would really appreciate it. thanls.
