Default Overclocking and PC Performance

I would like your input...Smart people of this Forum. This is my system:

[B]Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 (build 2600)

3.00 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4 - 16 kilobyte primary memory cache
1024 kilobyte secondary memory cache

Board: MICRO-STAR INC. MS-6728 2.00
Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. V3.8 07/07/2004


Still my system is not as "quick" when it comes to window applications. Do I have a bad mix of CPU and MOBO? Should I overclock? What's the process for Overclocking?

Thanks for your help!

If its slow just doing windows things then somethings wrong. Whats your definition of slow, and what applications are you trying with.

Do you have any crapware on the computer? Press control alt delete when you are sitting at the desk top, click on task manager, then performance tab. What is the ram being used the the % of the processor?

A+ certified.
I now am on the interweb:

Thanx...slow meaning when you click on menu's, there's a brief delay before the menu pulls down. That kind of slow. When you click on Start then Programs, a bit sluggish to pull the programs list out. As for Crapware, my system is extremely clean. As far as the Task Manager it's 0 to 1% at this moment and stable at 373 MB. I've got 1Gig of RAM installed.
