Overclocking: If the build is able to be.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Computer is six years old and a single core. It's just not cutting it for anything anymore. With the new Hulu Player update even that is having problems.

Additional Comments: I do want to play some of the latest games with high settings @ 1280x1024.
