    To overclock my CPU does anyone have a relativily straightforward guide as im quite new at OCing?

    As regards the RAM i just used old RAM from my previous pc, but yer it is an odd amount!

    The new 2 series cards coming out early 09, anyone have any specs or pricing, im expecting a bit of xmas money to be burning a hole in my wallet!

    And cheers for the advice, everyone on the forum are always very friendly!

    With overclocking the principles don't really change much between cpus I used this guide
    http://www.tech-forums.net/pc/f10/official-intel-overclocking-thread-162488/ I would suspect there are loads of guides on the net that are specific to your cpu though.

    I am not sure on prices of the new graphics cards I know that the new 260 will use 55nm architecture so willhave better clockspeeds and run cooler then the current cards. more info on this thread to get you started on your research....

    you might want to get some faster newer ram that you can run in Dual channel. You probably won't notice much of an improvement for everyday computing.

    You should be getting alot more than that razer? If that's with your 260 anyway...

    I don't have my windows machine anymore, but my score was 11659 with an 8800GT and an E6600 at 3GHz
