Amd Opteron 165 {Overclocking]

First time posting on the forums here.

I have a few questions that to some probably are outdated. Forward to my questions. I am starting to overclock my computer and here are my specs

CPU: AMD Opterton 165 Stepping?
Board: DFI Lanparty LP Nf4 Series
Memory: G.Skill 1x2 PC3200
Video Card: Nvidia Geforce 8500 GT

I have got it to OC from 1.8 to 2.1 but I have not messed with the voltages at all and I have no clue what to do when it comes to the memory. How can I OC my system even further on stock cooling without harming my CPU? My second question is that should I upgrade my graphics card to something else? Reason being that I pre-ordered Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and I wish to play it on this computer. I know my computer is outdated but I do not have the money for a new build and I have a hard time parting with this build since it is my very first build.

Thanks in advance.

    But unfortunately dude, Bad Company 2 will need a whole new system. Even if you've managed to OC your current hardware to the max, you'll still come up short.
