    1.70 gigahertz Intel Celeron
    8 kilobyte primary memory cache

    40.97 Gigabyte HD

    768 Megabytes Installed Memory

    :bowdown:

    Could I safely get 2.0 out of this? If I remember right it only has two fans though. I have a few extras here but not sure if there's a place to add another on the mobo:o

    I honestly don't know much beyond the basic settings to start with. I couldn't tell you if your system can be overclocked. I highly doubt you'll notice much difference between 1.7 and 2.0GHz though.

    no. building pc's and oc-ing nowadays is pretty much fool proof.

    google "how to overclock" and start reading. Its not too hard but you really need to know what is happening to your system overall when you change a number value, so that you dont toast something :bigthumb:
