    Question My PC And Games (Handle)

    Hello, So my PC is GTX 770 And AMD FX 8320 and I know it is a very old pc and the parts are very old but I was wondering if is it still decent for old games? Like the games that don't require much for example hidden object games and those other games that are not demanding? Thank you

    [SOLVED] Is this a good overclock (fx 8320)

    I OC'd my fx 8320 on an asus sabertooth 990fx r2.0 board with 120mm AIO cooler. The best I achieved was 4.7Ghz with 1.45v voltage. What do you think is this a good OC and should I try to go further with maybe a 360mm AIO?
