    Overclocking is dangerous and voids warranties, if you want to risk losing this system, say so and I can give you directions on how to easily overclock your CPU and RAM, since its an AMD 64 they go together.

    The PCIe channel isn't too hard either.

    That system is more then up to snuff, if your not happy with its performance there is likely another problem.

    Lets go for it. I've already overclocked the video card voltage....got it to 125 stable. uped the ram voltage just abit. i've heard that the 4200 can get up to 2.7 ghz and i can only get mine to 2.5 kinda want to get everything as high as i can
