CPU-Z screenshots.



Motherboard: this.
Fans: 1 80m case fan and a dual fan card which sits under GPU.
PSU: Ritmo 450W.
HDD #1: 320GB Sata Samsung 3GB/ps - HD322HJ.
Quote:
Capacity - 320GB
Interface - Serial ATA 3.0Gbps
Buffer DRAM Size - 16MB
Byte per Sector - 512bytes

AND
HDD #2: 80GB WDC WD800BB-00JHA0.

Curious if this would be able to run BFBC2 @ > 10 FPS at all? Having a LAN this weekend and need one last PC! :p 

Thanks in advance.

You should be able to get a pretty decent OC out that of that CPU; that generation has a history of being quite overclockable. As for everything else, moderate. RAM is slow to being with, so there won't be a whole lot of improvement. Graphics chipset isn't of any spectacular caliber, but again, will get a moderate overclock. I'd consider a new PSU, just something more reliable; it will put out the needed wattage, I'm just paranoid.

I'm a literal noob when it comes to OCing, should I use the Asrock HybridBooster OC feature or BIOS?

Where do I start LOL? ><

I wouldn't recommend doing a volt mod unless you're a master at soldering, which most people aren't.

There are stickies in the Overclocking forum (here :p ) that take you through the entire process of OC'ing your CPU and memory. It's quite a read, but it's worth your while.

For your graphics card, I like Evga Precision, but that's just me :)

I work with PCBs as a job, but I'm not going to bother.

Thanks anyway.
