Hi,
I've built computers before but I've never overclocked. Heres my specs and I wanted to know how high I can overclock and how to do it.

Intel e8400
ASUS P5Q PRO 775 P45 RT
Corsair 4gb (2x 2gb) XMS2 DD2 800mhz
I'm putting in an Nvidia 7900 gto for now but I'm going to upgrade to ati 4850 in a month
PSU- 480W
and I bought this cooler:
ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Any thoughts to how high I can get and how I should do so? and is 800 mhz ram okay?

Read the guide as a headstart. Ram will be fine up to overclocking to 3.6ghz.
