Talking Opinion Wanted

I am new to the forums. So Hi to everyone.

I recently upgraded my Mobo/Ram/CPU but kept my graphics card to what it was.

Here is my config :

Mobo : ASUS PW5 DH Deluxe
Processor : Intel E6600 Core 2 Duo
GPU : ATI X850 XT Platinum Edition
RAM : Corsair 2 GB 667 MHz
HDD : 200 GB Sata

Now, guys please tell me how you like this configuration ?

Secondly, I would be venturing into overclocking the CPU for the first time. So I need help guys. What are the best ways to overclock the CPU.

Umm.. actually, I had gone way over budget when I bought the mobo. LOL! so I settled for this.

So give me few basic rules to overclock the puppy thats known as conroe.

Please dont give me links or guides.. just quick tips.

The gfx card maybe old but it still rocks. I am sure you being a techie know that. This card is still a beast. I play everything on high.

Ok, regarding the OC'ing thing, I did read but lot of stuff was too technical. If you could hand out some quick tips.. like in steps.. You would rule

lol not dissing the card .. jsut stating the facts.... ok ... from my knowledge 2 ways up the fsb or the mutliplier.... and then if you get BSoD then you add a lil voltage.. and so on and so forth until the stystem becomes unstable then back off aliltle and your sett! Ocing in a nutshell... but you will need to understand the working off it ... some times work it out on paper and its easy!
