im new to this forum but have been lurking for a while. i recently traded my laptop for a much better desktop. i have read the sticky about overclocking but am not sure where to put my first step. i would like to get a little bit more speed out of my computer but dont want to go to any extremes as to fry anything. i have 2 fans, one on the processor and one in the back of the case. i keep the dust down as much as possible. would i need another fan? where should i start?

also as a side note, is my graphics card worth a [bleep]? or should i spend just a little more and get a better one. i play a lot of first person shooters and it seems like Crysis Warhead was the only one i couldnt run all out on graphics.

Dells have no overclocking facilities available so the ability isn't available to you, unfortunately.
