Default Crappy HP

i have an old HP Pavilion from 2000
64mb RAM 100mhz
30gb HD
P3 667mhz
anything you suggest to get it going faster?
could i OC it just a little bit?

i know im getting a new HP soon, my parents will not let me build my own or get a good custom configuer from ibuypower.com
i guess i'll live with what i get.

That bites. My opinion is that HP's are a total drag. I'd never spend any money on a HP computer or Printer. I've just seen way too many of them with problems and they're always slow as hell. They're just not worth my time. Too bad your parents want to waste their money. Good luck though..

I would ask if you can get a dell, in the mean time i wouldnt ruin a computer that works even though it might be slow by burning it up . At least if you have to get a premanufactured computer get a dell. HP's arnt terrible, but not that great either. Good Luck man
