    It depends on the card. It will stop working once you go to far, but that shouldn't damage it in the long run, just dial back a few mhz. I used this. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/340404-33-wolfram-overclocking-guide
  2. It's likely a CPU bottleneck. The Q6600 was a very solid processor of it's time, but it's slowing down now. Your best bet would be to OC the processor.
  3. Holy craps, look the RAM. I doubt the mobo supports DDR3, but if it does and the CPU does too I would go for that 100%.
