4coredualsata2 r2.0 hd4670 agp
Good morning everyone. This is my first post, so thanks in advance for hearing me out! I bought the HIS 4670 agp (1gb ddr3) GPU in order to build my son a nice little gaming pc out of an older pc that I intended to overclock. Well, my little girl spilled a whole glass of juice on the board I intended to use and destroyed everything except the graphics card. Sooo, there I sat with only a pricey agp card that I couldnt return( PS and drives survived too)! (don't ever do a build on the kitchen table!) I had no choice but to build the cheapest retro pc with the best possible components. I bought the Asrock-4coredualsata2r2.0 for 57.00 and a pentium e5200 Wolfdale dualcore cpu for another 52.00. I got 2gigs of ddr2 800mhz ram from a friend who was also doing a rebuild for $20.00. I have the system up and running everything seems very stable. hd4670 installed with no problems at all. This board has agp and pcie(4x only), ddr1 and ddr2 capabilities. However I heard that it sucks for overclocking and I really dont want to do a bsel mod. I would just like to get to 3ghz, does anyone know how I could get there? I've been searching for a simple procedure. Thanks again.
