Re: OC Factors and their effects
1. Yes, it is generally the most noticeable component, when overclocked, to see a good increase in performance. If you're lucky, and have excellent cooling along with great conditions, you can overclock a processor beyond 60%. I've gotten close to 100% on my E2140 on a daily basis, only limited by my motherboard's overclocking ability.
2. True in terms of gaming. You can increase clocks pass 15%, depending on the aftermarket cooling and the graphic card. Some cards are overclocking monsters, while others can't overclock for the life of it.
3. In terms of the type of programs you use. Such as editing and design, which are very RAM demanding. If you have more than 4GBs of memory, it makes sense to go 64bit.
4. Very little, in fact, not really noticeable in real world performance, but in benchmarking.
The hard drives in terms of the computer's performance for the most part, is the speed of loading programs.
