You mean upping the volts to the processor Magictorch? Won't hurt the CPU doing this?
I believe he is referring to the cpu clock speed ...

You got me thinking about upgrading this system as well.
I ordered this card as well last night

This system has a XP 3200 which has been running at 2.5 Ghz for years.
Might just swap the 6600GT out and give it a go.
