i was wondering, what will the difference be if i overclocked my Geforce GT210. i know its a low-quality GPU but i dont have the money for a new one yet. i would like to know how to do it as-well.

motherboard: p8h61-m le/USB3
CPU: Intel Pentium G620 dual-core
GPU: Geforce gt210
RAM: 4GB integral
PSU: 450w (it was already fitted with my gaming case and there is no name on it)

If you really want better performance, buy a new card, otherwise I'd be overclocking that card as far as I can! You can use "nvidia performance" or MSI Afterburner to overclock.

Just use MSI Afterburner to OC (it's easy), but you could OC that GPU to the moon and it wouldn't make much of a difference (nothing like making an unplayable game playable again).

That card doesn't even have an extra power connector (gets all of its power from the PCIe slot), so it will never pull more than 75W because it physically can't. You'll be fine with that PSU.
