Well I will try again.
I thought I posted before but I guess it didn't take... :-)

So anyway I just built a new PC and want to optimize it for my games. I also do some video editing and DVD recording...
By the way I have a NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GX2 1G
video card.

Any advice on what I should do to tweek my computer ? I thought maybe push it up to about 3.4 +/-

here is my CPUZ output...

Crap ?
Oh well ,anyway...

CPU = Intel Core2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83GHz
MB = Intel DX48BT2
RAM = OCZ Platinum PC10666 DDR3 1333MHz Memory (4 x 1024MB)
PSU = Ultra X3 ULT40064 1000-Watt
I don't know all the specs for the PSU

Crap in that you took up a huge amount of space for what you could have listed in four or five lines.

If you want to overclock, get a better motherboard. Boards made by Intel are never the best choice. Intel chipsets - YES; Intel boards - NO:
