    I think you can do that in the BIOS....

    Also, a p5 @ 2.53 probably wont have enough power to play the latest games, like NFS Carbon, etc. If that's what you're into.

    What do you play it on? Medium/low? I dont think you can play a game like that on high with a nVidia 4200, if I cant play BF2 on medium/high with my 6800GS overclocked... :)
