    not to discourage you . but over clocking isnt really good for components . especially INTERGRATED .. i dont know if it is possible . but your way out isnt very expensive and will give much pleasure ..
    www.newegg.com USA
    www.webhallen.com sweden .
    cheers

    As far as I know, since the integrated graphics are on the north bridge chip on the motherboard the only way to overclock it would be to raise the FSB in the BIOS, if possible with your board. The performance increase wouldn't be noticeable, though - the system would become unstable on stock cooling before you reached an overclock that would be noticeable.

    Integrated graphics cards are poor performers for gaming, your best bet to get that machine running games decently is to buy a mid-range card thats a generation or two old (Like a Geforce FX 5600 or Radeon 9600) ...This will still give you much better performance compared to integrated graphics and the cost will be far less than the current generation of graphics cards.

    Yeah I go with WarcC on this one ! It wouldn't be worth overclocking the onboard graphic's.

    Overclocking won't make something that's too slow suddenly become acceptable, unless it's a Celeron 300A ;)

    You could overclock your Intel graphics to the moon and they would still suck.
