Use bios settings to control bus frequency & multiplier rates for the processor(s)..

You probably get more bang for the buck by over-clocking a graphic card
--since over-clocking is usually of interest to gamers..

I liked that as well.

What I did was to use the first part of the address, i.e

http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=

I typed in my question and then it gave a link to copy and past, a bit further down.

Pretty nifty, as it seems much more polite than the usual "search Google"
