lol, I was actually right about that.

I have the same VID on my E2180 (unfortunately) and I have gotten it to 3.3ghz at 1.485 volts but the temps were to high to run it like that 24/7 on my AF7 but a Xigmatek Rifle should keep it cool enough.

You should just try overclocking it first, if your motherboard supports it.

If you can get into Bios, then your able to overclock. I think that is what gurusan meant.

If you OC this thing to 3ghz, then if you want to, stay with what you have now and save up for a better rig ($1,300+?).

Or if you get it to 3ghz, just sell your 8600gt for however much you can and then buy an 8800 GT. I really doubt your going to max AoC out with only $500 anyway.

Vids are native on a CPU, you can't change it, except by disabling Speedstep, it drops a little... but that means you won't overclock that well.. but you won't know without trial and error
