real basic help appreciated
Im brand new to the forums, and have no idea on overclocking...
Im running a K8n Pro motherboard
AMD 64 3200+ processor
120 ati HD
80 ATi HD
80 IDE HD
X800 XT Plat graphics card
I ran aquamark3 and 3dmark03, both with ok results but not "great"
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated
sorry the scores:
3d mark 03= 11470
Shouldn't those ATi hard drives be ATA hard drives? And are they S(erial)ATA?
Tell us about your RAM.
you're taking the michael with those scores! if that thing flies any higher you'll singe the wings on the sun!

Is this just a way to pimp your scores? ¬_¬
I dont see any problem with those scores.
The ram is kingston hyper x 512 i have three sticks of them (they have the blue heat case around them 400 mgz) And no not pimpin scores hehe, I don't know a lot a bout scores just didn't know if those were very good or not.... and the hard drives are (ATA) okies newbie time (they have the small cords that connect to the HD instead of the ribbon).... if that helps... I just wanted some ideas on overclocking... If it can be done and how to safely hehe Thanks for all the replys
"Small cords instead of the ribbon" sounds like SATA drives to me. If you're wanting to learn about overclocking and mess around with it a bit, there're plenty of how-tos here and elsewhere on the net. But if you feel you need more performance, you don't
How much did that rig cost you?
actually, thats what came first in my mind.....
well the price on the motherboard and processor was around 550-600$ the HD's were 160$ for the 120, 90$ for the 80, and the WD IDE HD was 80$. The X800 XT graphics card was $499 the case was $189...but I traded my old motherboard in (and some other stuff i had from the updates) on all this too so I got a couple hundred knocked off, the memory was $132 a pop. I got the rest i.e DVD,CD etc in bits and pieces over time. so not too bad really, for a build it yourself job. Just the Kingston, at $139 a pop, I should have probably tried new egg, and I almost jumped on the corsair... but Im not that computer savvy..hehe, I work with computers all day, but am just now getting into the idea of overclocking and learning as much as possible. I appreciate all the comments, and any other help is greatly appreciated. I tried out Farcry yesterday, and it was a great in "low" settings, but as i raised the graphics to push them up to ultra the sound got choppy, and it "stuck in a few places. don't know if thats normal or not? But i have the soundcard that came with the motherboard, so i may have to invest in a sound card too?
again thx guys
