    Hello all. I am saving for a new PC, but with my budget I cannot get it until the end of this year. In the meantime, I have a Dell Optiplex 620 with a Pentium D, 3.5 GB of RAM, and an 8800GT 512mb. Until I can afford my new system, what can I do to get the most out of this system? I am open to overclocking, just about anything.
    Thanks

    If you are saving for new build you probably don't want to invest in Optiplex. So just don't clutter it with unnecessary soft and use it responsibly :) As to overclocking - it can't be done (at least properly).

    Well even like just a GPU oc? I understand dell doesn't really let you do the CPU clocks. What program would you recommend? And I don't have unnecessary stuff, I am very conscious about junk. :)

    I think BIOS is still the way to go for OC, so I wouldn't recommend any software. But you may consider upgrading system drive to SSD, which you will be able to use later for your build. You should definitely see boost in performance with that upgrade.
