    Okay all, I'm gonna see what I can get outta the machine I am putting together for my nephew. Here's what I went with, can you guys help in what and HOW I can overclock this stuff. I don't wanna totally push the limits, but if he can get more outta it, that would be nice.

    Gigabyte GA-7VAX Motherboard
    Kingston 512MB DDR333 PC2700
    Saphire Tech ATI Radeon 8500LE AGP 4X 128MB DDR
    AMD Athlon XP 2100+ 1.73GHz Processor
    Thermaltake Volcano 7+ Cooler
    Arctic Silver 3

    Now I've never done any over clocking, so if you don't mind, put it in English! :D

    Thanks!

    Sweet! Thanks for the links. Doesn't seem too hard, just one question. I know not too press too hard or do too many strokes, but you do have to press enough to get thru/passed the thin coating over everything right? So you're actually taking away from the solder, correct? It's not just putting layers of graphite on top of the board.....???

    Thanks again!!

    How about the CPU and MB? Thanks!

    You add graphite to the resistor - to lower its resistance, stay off of the PCB & do not remove any solder.

    Don't go nuts without a volt meter either - it's a good way to toast your card
