I think that you should tell your friend to keep their eyes on their own screen! ;^)

If you just got this 'custom built' PC and it's too slow (for YOUR needs)...you bought the wrong configuration. Jumping to the conclusion that you are not very PC Hardware knowledgeable at this time, I would suggest that you not attempt to FRY your new system just yet.

Enjoy it for a while, read up on Overclocking...there are forums that specialize in that.. and then decide if you want to engage in it.

But MOST OF ALL, don't do it because someone ELSE tells you that your PC is too slow!!!

You may be able to overclock a little, but you most likely wouldn't get much gain from overclocking that cpu.. You're best bet would be to set the fsb to 200 in the bios, and the multiplier at 10 so that it's still a 2400+, just useing a 400mhz FSB. You would see more gain from running a 400mhz FSB than overclocking the chip..
