Hello

I would like to OC my CPU in order to run games better.

I dont have a clue about OC'ing tho, and was wondering if anyone could help.

Is there a userfriendly OC program around or is it a bit more complex than that?


Heres my CPU info from SiSoftware Sandra:

I have a GeForce 8500GT 256MB right now, but thinking about upgrading to a GTS250 and a Corsair VX550W PSU.
