Hi, i'm new to the whole overclocking scene, but i have good general knowledge of hardware and bios etc.

I'm wondering how and by how much i should overclock my p4 3.4ghz HT 800fsb cpu. (bearing in mind i'm getting a c2d soon enough so slightly cooking the chip doesnt bother me (as long and i dont ruin my new mobo! :p )

I've never bothered before because i made the typical error of buying my pc last year from HP (i know i know... :p ) and therefor i knew i wouldnt be able to overclock my cpu safely, but now i've just updated my RAM, MOBO and CPU Fan... i'll link you what i have so you have a rough idea how good the stuff is and hopefully be able to tell me how much i can/should overclock to.
