you might wanna download a new bios. the new drivers are at www.nvidia.com. be sure to install sp1 before installing the drivers if you have windows xp. as far as overclocking, you might wanan stick around the forums and learn the basics before you start. they will help you a lot more than a book will. trust me

eh. . . depending on the processor you've got, I'd take it a little slower on your fsb pushing(if you did it in one step up to 2.2GHz). I don't know if you're under a time constraint, but take it easy, the trip is half the fun:)
Totaly hang around the forums and you'll get all you need to know, and a lot more stuff you didn't need, or ever really wanted to know, and now you've got bad dreams because of it, and your therapist said, "you've got an obsession here, I suggest. . ." Wait, that's me. . .

welcome
