Ok heres the specs, my main board is a asus-p4c800E deluxe, with an Intel p4 2.8 northwood processor ht800 mhz fsb. I have 1gig corsair ddr 3700 ram. I have an asus-9800 xt 256 meg video card. I was wondering if over clocking my cpu would make my video card perform better, I should also mention that i have not overclocked my memory because frankly i dont know much about it, all of my other settings on my mainboard are pretty much stock, any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help guys. 8)

I forgot to add that I play bf-1942 desert-combat mod, and get 99.9 fps, with my current setup. So ? the old adage if it isnt broke don't fix it?? :?

lol, pc-3700 ram is mainly for overclocking. not too sure why you got it if you weren't going to overclock anyway...

also, overclocking your cpu does not help your gpu perform better. they are two seperate things. overclocking your cpu may help your games perform better, though.

and with 100fps, why do you need to overclock? its not broke, so dont fix it. (pretty much contradicting what overclocking does to your system... lol)

there are lots of aspects to overclocking. i would suggest looking into google for guides on overclocking.

for now, all i can say is take this slowly.

dont take it slowly, oc your video card with powerstrip to its highest setting and see what happens, thats performace. nah, im just kidding, you already seem like you have a nice rig so dont fuck it up.
