Right theres my spec.

Couple of questions

1. Any overclocking reccomendations?
2. The psu is a 450W one that came with the case can it handle my specs?
3. Been saving up some money any reccomended buys?

Ask for more info

Regards,

Scott (Hellramsden)

i live in UK and i got the PSU from that case the exact same one. the cooler you got should let you OC all the way to 3.8Ghz. but there are cheaper and better cooler to get then that aging Zalman. dont waste your money on it. get the Xigmatech S1283 its much better.

i think i can help you beter if you tell me whats your budget?

1. Get this to find out your specs:

2. Are you sure there's no sticker on the psu? There should be one on the left side.

3. If you have a P965, P35, P45, X38 or X48 mobo, go ahead and try overclocking the cpu and maybe the ram. Your cpu is:

http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SL9...

1066 / 4 * 9 = 2398.5 or ~2.4Ghz

You can get ~3Ghz out of it.

400 * 8 = 3.2Ghz (400MHZ FSB)
400 * 7 = 2.8Ghz

BTW, read this for o/cing c2d:
