im not really sure, but i think you go into the bios and raise some FSB levels or something like that. im SURE you can find other threads on the forums that will explain it really well.

you can go into bios and up the FSB, but make sure you have a good enough PSU, mine burnt out when I first did that to mine, or you could change the clock multipliers in bios ("IE" change multiplier from 10 to 11)
and anyway athlonxp3200 isnt that old, it can wipe the floor with any celeron or celeron D......

When you turn on your computer, it will say press DEL or something like to enter the BIOS.
