Your CPU is good enough. Why not overclock it?

4GB of RAM is good enough for any gamer.

What graphics card do you have? Doesn't list any.

What do you mean by slow?

An upgrade to Windows 7 x64 would help you out a good bit, Windows Vista is (to put it nicely) bad. And I wouldn't suggest OC'ing, that's an OEM PC, and probably has a small cramped case with insufficient cooling. And 24gb RAM is COMPLETELY unnecessary. And I highly doubt that you're motherboard even supports that much ram. Plus, you're limited to 4gb (technically 3.25gb) RAM with an x86 (32 bit) OS.

It's the same CPU. Several of us over here OC our CPU. It's not dangerous as long as you keep it under control. We can help you with that in the OC section. I overclocked my Q6600 when I had it. (a few years ago)

If that memory is DDR2, most 775 boards have a limit of 8GB, I think.
