Dont overclock, unless you have good PC cooling, or it could overheat.

I did overclock a 1Ghz but over heated, then I got some good PC cooling and it was OK.

To overclock, you need a BIOS that lets you over volt it or a utility, Type overclokers into download.com or something.

Hope helps.

Overclockers.co.uk (based here) or Overclockers.com (US based) are the two most well known overclocker sites.

Both have very good forums (free registration required).

Overclocking can be done in many ways, but you need to read about it first. There are some very good books on the principle available in good books shops - or maybe your own central library has one you can borrow.

In short, you can increase the speed of which you processor works, you can increase the voltage, you can increase the bus speed. You can also o'clock your graphics card and your ram.

You can do all or some or any combination of the those options. Lowering one and increasing another can be better than cranking everything up.

WARNING!
Any warranty on any clockable part of your PC is invalidated by your attempting to overclock it.

If you have bought a PC bundle (rather than self-build) you could invalidate your ENTIRE warranty IF they find out you overclocked just one part of it.
