Specs: Windows 7, Intel pent 4 3.00ghz 4g ram 3 usable
Can i overclock my Intel pent 4 3.00ghz CPU? I have an eMachines T3522 E-4300 E4350 S.775 Motherboard and a 500w power supply. Nvidia 8600GT video card. Is it safe to overclock? My CPU causes horrible FPS stutters while playing Diablo 3. Any helpful tips and advice would be greatly appreciated.

If overclocking will not work. Could anyone suggest a barebones package for under $550 that will be optimal for gaming?

✔ Best Answer
You won't be able to overclock your system because it uses a custom/locked eMachines BIOS.

Take a look at the Tech Report's Econobox. It's a little over $550, so if staying under is a must, you could go for a Radeon HD 6750 instead of the suggested 7770. Or you could reuse some of the components in your current system, such as the DVD drive and hard drive.
