it's a pre built, no ocing. also there would be no point to overclock that gpu, it's not very good (no offense)

thanks luke for answer
i knew its good for the bin , what do u suggest
change the mother board and keep the cpu then overclock it?
will a graphic card change anything at all (ati hd 3850 agp)
other ways next week it will be on orbit.
its not for gaming just to see hd tv dvbs2
thanks
