    Hello everyone, i just ordered You must login or register to view this content. Graphics card, and You must login or register to view this content. Power supply. You must login or register to view this content. is my OEM PC.

    I am by no means claiming to have the best setup, but it works for me Happy.

    I am looking to overclock my GPU, and was wondering if anyone had some tips on doing so, or on anything in general.

    One last thing, can anyone recommend some good "free" games? Awesome face
    Any help will be appreciated!

    Thanks lol. I had Cod4, but i never had a CD key. Cracked servers on Cod4 suck :n:.

    The reason i want to overclock is so i can just get a little better framerates. Stock i believe it is 860/1210, i might take it to like 950/1250.
