    I wrote a review on the comparison of a ATI Radeon 7000 and a Nicely priced Mid-grade ATI Radeon 9600 Pro. Like benchmarks, and prices. Might help.

    You can see it at http://www.hybrid-mods.tk

    Well forget overclockin' the CPU as Compaq's arn't made for it (and there are more ppl askin' about overclockin' name brand PC's in this forum than ya can poke a sick a but the answers are still the same) but programs such as SoftFSB or CPUFSB may get ya a slight overclock but limited due to no voltage changes can be made.

    CPUFSB is asking me me for my mainboard manufacturer, where do I find this info?

    Mainboard type?


    PLL manufacturer?

    PLL type?

    What should my multiplyer be?

    My current frequency is 901.5mhz?

    I have no experience with these programs myself but this page will help you determin your PLL chip though more info maybe found from that site. Also seein' as ya stated first that ya had an 800MHz CPU then the multiplier should be 8 and for 900MHz now means that there is an overclock workin' already but if ya made a mistake b4 and ya CPU is really 900MHz then the multipier is 9.

    Heh, what amd_man is saying is that OEM comps, like Dell, Compaq, etc, WILL NOT O/C AT ALL. Dont bother trying, they cant do it. The options arent available in the BIOS and the parts they are made with are only good enough to run at standard settings. : peace2: Mista K6
