Hi,
this link will give you some basics: Intel Overclocking Guide - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net
Almost any machine can overclocked to some degree although as I'm sure your aware some are easier to overclock than others. Try the above link for starters and then if you could list your motherboard, RAM and graphics it would be a great help.

To be honest santheman that system is getting rather old now and I'm not sure how it would stand up if you started overclocking it.. If it's more power your after then you would be better off upgrading to a more recent system.

Depending on how much you want to spend an AMD based system could be obtained for not much cash, if you built it yourself of course..

I guess if you could find an old motherboard you could use that but like with the other system your still talking about hardware that was released in 2003..
Where abouts do you live?
