Overclocking will not transform a terrible PC into a good one (or even into a reasonable one).

What PC specs do you have, and why is it terrible? Answer that and there may be some practical advice you can get.

I think you need to do a lot of reading about this before you even consider overclocking and ask yourself 1. "why do I need to do it" 2. "Will I gain any benefit from it"

If you don't know what you are doing you could KILL your PC.

YEP, don't bother, i doubt your PC is capable of O/C and by the time you have bought more memory (which i believe you need anyway) and bigger fans to compensate for the extra heat, you might just as well buy a new PC.
O/C is not for the feint hearted and reduces the life of the components involved...

Even if you can O/C 9 times out 0f 10 its not worth it you can optomise your PC in other ways that cost nothing to make it run faster...
