Hi all, great site, glad I found it.

I am in the limbo land of being a few months away from affording new bits for my PC and want, in the interim, to be able to juice my existing one up a little if possible.
What I have.....
Gigabyte Intel AGPSET 440BX BX2000 1.6 motherboard
Award ROM PCI/ISA BIOS 2A69KG0E (Theres a 4.51PG in there somewhere too)
Intel Celeron 466 CPU
Gigabyte TNT2 32Mb Video Card

I have been doing some research but for someone who has never looked into overclocking previously, I am a little confused to be honest.

I have read a suggestion of increasing through BIOS the CPU speed.
(Celeron 466 Mhz - 581 Mhz @ 7 x 83 Mhz or also 525 Mhz @ 7 x 75 Mhz)
Does anyone have any suggestions please ?

Thank you.

Also, with the vid card, I have thought that it is also overclockable. I would assume through software but haven't been able to, as yet, find the correct software. Would I be right in assuming it would come with drivers ?

Cheers

Well for the video card use PowerStrip download it here: http://download.com.com/3000-2094-10121 ... ag=lst-0-1
don't go too high on the card I let my GeForce2 MX400 stay at

Engine- 186.13MHz
Memory- 177.95MHz (both are in the yellow area)

With that I can get 3000 on 3DMark2001 SE...see my sig...
I would run it higher, but my video card doesn't have a fan or heatsink... :cry:

Go ahead and set the FSB to 75MHz and reboot your unit. If it goes to 525MHz for the CPU, then there you are. Run some apps to see if it's stable and if it is, then you have an overclocked system. 8)

Dopey question approaching......
Set the FSB ?
Sorry, dont answer that until I can get home and actually LOOK in bios :)
But on the other hand, forewarned.....
If youre familiar with the award bios I listed above, do you know what section in bios will have these settings please ?

Cheers everyone.

Do you have the manual for that mobo? It may not be in the BIOS as it is an older board. It may be that you will need to set the Front Side Bus (FSB) by using jumpers on the board itself.
