My System Specs


^^Agree with above. Drop the ram multiplier, or if its not labeled as a multiplier it may just say 333mhz/400mhz/533 etc...just drop it down one (its the same idea, just labelled different). By doing this you can keep your ram in spec and try to push the cpu further.

If your motherboard supports newer processors you could keep an eye out for a used/sale x4 955/965 which would be a substantial upgrade for you (just a thought if you want to get your system to last a bit longer for relatively little cost). Example: $90 for a new x4 965 has been the norm for the last little while. I have been thinking about it myself with my x3 710.

EDIT: in your last screen shot you can see your fsb/ram multiplier is currently at 1:2, so because you are at 220mhz fsb your ram is at 440mhz (which is 880mhz effective because it is ddr).
