I think it's when you make your CPU go faster than what it's supposed to. I don't know how to do it though.

Overclocking the GPU has the most noticable result. If you want to overclock the graphics processor download a program called RivaTuner. Once you have the GPU unlocked from it's factory speed, I recommend you install the newest drivers for you video card. Open up the video card manager which both ATI and NVidia have. Since I'm only familiar with NVidia I know it will be able to optimize the settings for you, but it only will if you have the video card unlocked which it will not allow you do from the manager.

I think overclocking is putting more stuff on your comp than the memory has room for. It slows it down drastically. That's just what I always thought. But I'm no computer whiz either.

It's like reving your engine up in your car for more performance. Drawbacks, reving to much can blow the engine (destroy the chip), uses more fuel (electricity).

What it does is increase the clock frequency to boost performance. On the CPU it's more processing power, for the GPU it's more frames per second.

I've downloaded that progam about the video card a while back,but is there any realiable programs for my CPU?
I need more FPS Smiley Tongue

CPU won't increase the frames per second. But most people usually overclock their CPU in the BIOS. Sorry I'm not aware of a good program for the processor.
