pre-built systems are usually hard to overclock and they arent stabble because of the usually cheap RAM and PSU's that are in them i wouldnt suggest pushing it to far. you could only push it a little bit and that little bit isnt enough to see a performace gain
depending on the specs we will see what we can do
also the bios might be locked out because it is a pre-built computer

your not going to get any type of performace gain out of that at all you would be better to go out and buy more RAM that are the same size at least get another 256 for a total of 512 or scrap them all together and get 2X 512Mb's of RAM provided that your system can handle that much
look i would seriuosly not suggest overclocking that at all but if you really want then raise teh FSB speeds by 10Mhz incriments and see if the system will post but be warned you could seriuosly damage your CPU,
i just have to say that i nor will this forum be responsable for any damage cause to your computer but we will help you to minimise the risk of damges
have you read the overclocking guide yet???
if not i would suggest that you do,
but dont expect mirecales out of that CPu because you wont even notice a large or in fact any increase in performace

I am gonna get 3DMark06 so I can overclock my video card. It easy to overclock it with the ATI Tool Tray. Do you think I could overclock it and actually see a difference?

the thing is i can overclock mine because it has teh same core as yours but by defualt it runs at a lower speed but your is pretty much at the max spped anyway so i wouldnt push it hardly at all if you want better performace i would say just upgrade your computer its pretty low by todays standards but the choicer is yours and i dubt you will even be able to run 3Dmark06 i would get 3Dmark 05 instead 2dmark 06 is for high end PCI-Express cards and to somewhat teh new generation of DX10 cards
