overclocking is going into the bios settings and changing the FSB and voltage and such as to create a much faster machine. the key is to go until you become unstable and tehn go back a little so your still stable. for video cards you can use ATI tool or coolbits to overclock ATI and Nvidia cards. just go until you start seeing artifacts or until they are very very hot.

The best way to put it is making things run faster than they were designed to ;P Making a 1.6GHz processor running at 1.8+

Usally you have to unlock the procesoor somehow*guides can be found online* then get into your bios or find the jumpers on your mobo(for old OLD stuff now ;P) and set them to faster speeds.

If you don't know how to get into the bios, I wouldn't even try OCing... It's quite dangerous and sometimes you have to get into your computer, say to reset it if something goes wrong...
