I don't want to fry my system, but I just threw together some older
parts and would like to try overclocking, a little. I have

Abit kd7 raid
amd athlon 2600+ 2.13Ghz
Windows XP
300w psu
768 Ram pc2100
Nvidia FX 5200 128mgb

I would just like to play BF2, HL2, Far Cry, with a little better
performance, can't really get into any newer hardware right now. I
know this mobo has the soft menu feature, but I am not sure what to
adjust and to what level would be stable/safer.

Any suggestions?

Re: never overclocked before

try asking in the "overclocking amd" section. im only good
with intel.

Games a decent resolutions are generally GPU constrained not CPU
constrained.  Therefore, you might want to look into getting a new graphics
card or into overclocking you current graphics card.

That vid card is so slow, it'll be the limiting factor in yr system.
Overclocking CPU and memory can gain you a very veyr little bit. Try to
overclock the video, that might help a bit. Is de card actively cooled?
