    When you can afford to replace the entire system, and not have it bother you.
    For a little rougher OT, come to Off Topic Central (Home of the Headbanger)

    I think most overclockers overclock their computer for fun and not necessity. There will never be a time when you need to overclock... the time will come though when you need to upgrade.

    Hope that helps!
    Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak.

    I decide long before I even buy the components. I actually do it as soon as I watch the computer POST at default speed

    You mean people actually own their systems for more than a couple minutes without overclocking...that's just unheard of

    I personally try to hand select the components with the sole purpose of overclocking. Maybe that's why I'm always replacing stuff???
