Default Help me overclock my PC! (DFI NF3 250GB, A64 2800+, Corsair 1 gig Dual Channel, )

Hi guys. After reading some of the guides and stuff, I'm still confused about overclocking my pc.

Can someone give me the exact settings to put in my bios?

It's only a 1.8GHZ Athlon 64 2800+, DFI landparty NF3 250gb socket 754 board, Corsair Valueselect 2x512mb dual ch. memory. I also have a Seagate 120gb EIDE drive and a Leadtek 6600GT AGP.

I can't seem to play Battlefield 2 on max settings very well. I don't expect 100fps, but I know it can do better than this.

Quad Q9300
ATI 4850 512MB
Acer 24" Monitor

No one can tell you the exact settings you need to put into your BIOS. If you read the guides it's fairly straightforward, lower LDT ratio, lock AGP/PCI, raise FSB, test stability.

Repeat until instability occurs, loosen timings, up vcore and vdimm and repeat until desired results are obtained.

You should overclock your 6600GT 10% first, then your CPU.

A faster hard drive would help a lot also.
