    M/b - Microstar OEM dont know what type (can find out though)
    Ram - 1gig SDRAM
    g/c - ATI 9600 pro 256
    In whole a Medion PC
    Sometimes some prgrams refer to the processor as a willamette but the FSB on my bios doesnt match that of a wilamette - most programs recognise the processor as a northwood!

    your not gonna be oveclockin that.
    it might be possible to use a program like softFSB but it probably wouldnt be worthwhile.
    it looks like its upgrade time

    If you do upgrade, you could probably keep almost everything except your motherboard. Even if the case might still be useful.

    But overclocking is pretty much out of the question with a brand name PC.

    SDRAM?! I hope that means DDR SDRAM. If its plain PC133 SDRAM that is really getting you up the ass in performance
