Hey everyone, I've always flirted with the idea of overclocking my computer but never got around to it. My computer has been working pretty well the past year and a half, but its been pretty slow lately, so I was thinking of experimenting with it. If you guys can give me some advice and maybe point me in the right direction, it'd be great! I pretty much have no knowledge on OC'ing, so pardon my ignorance :pt1cable: 

I've got an Athlon 64 X2 4000+ 2.1ghz on a Gigabyte GA-MA69GM-S2H AM2 AMD 690G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with 2gb of ram. I'm thinking I want to overclock it a little bit to where i get more out of it, but am not pushing it too hard either...any suggestions? I'm planning to install windows 7 home OS on it as well, will it run 7 smoothly (before and after OC?). Thanks ahead!
