    i look at my system properties and it shows 210 Mhz. i would like to try to overclock it so i can speed up the Cpu so maybe that can help. if not then any advice?
    on my Ati video card the catlyse shows for it at Gpu 725mhz and memory 400mhz . is this the problem?
    please help me. i tryed looking at forums for over clocking but i dont know where to find the fsb info and ratio info and to set at the correct multiplyier.
    im at work atm so i cant really get into specs that shows on the bios till i get home later.
    i tryed to overdrive the video card and seem to be stable at 28-29.2 fps in a meripo but then crashed out and closed ffxi and send me to desktop.
    also note this is my Mobo: GA-MA78GM-S2HP(rev2.1). if this helps.

    Here's a good link for overclocking AM2's - OC'ing an AM2: An update to Easy 1, 2, 3, Overclocking ... - Overclockers Forums

    If you're using 'catalyst overdrive' then the crashing is pretty much normal. Back it down from what it gives you as maximum settings. I'm not positive what version of 'overdrive' you're using, but it's not the best way to overclock gpu's. It does work for a simple gui, but it really should just be used for upping the fanspeed.
