You can download Everest. It will give you detailed information about your computer.
I believe you would click -Motherboard, CPU, you find more details about your CPU.

Edit: Sorry, I hit post before I checked this over.

You will need to go out and purchase a network card.

You can look at them at

Good Luck.

Hey, chrisshehu:

Thanks for posting back. So Everest worked for finding the information that you required?

Unless you really know what you are doing, I would would avoid overclocking.
Some folks are into getting there computer to run a nano, pico, or millisecond faster.
If I were a hardcore gamer I may see I point in it...I am not a gamer, or a risk taker, so I have always avoided overclocking.

tg1911, gave you some good links to look at though.

Good-luck.
JC
