    So, got my first custom build all assembled today and everything is running fine. However, being a low-class build, I want it to still run better than fine. I was looking towards overclocking the GPU and CPU, and possible the RAM and Mobo. I have RivaTuner, nTune, ATiTool, and other stuff, but I don't know exactly what to use for things other than the GPU. Specs are as follows, if you were wondering, and all on air cooling.
    GPU: GeForce 9500 GT 1GB
    CPU: Athlon 6000+ X2 Dual Core @ 3.0 GHz
    Mobo: Asus M2N-E nForce 570 Ultra SLI
    RAM: 4GB OCZ memory
    Case: RaidMax Smilodon w/ 7 cooling fans throughout

    GPU is stock clocked at 550/1400/400. I've tried doing small, 10 MHz increments and that seems to be working. I'll tweek it some more later, though. What I would like to do now is check out the CPU and others. Could anyone point me in the right direction as far as programs I could use, or if I would have to use the BIOS to modify the settings?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Your cpu is not a good overclocker :( maby you can get a 200mhz oc max.
