New to Overclocking! Please help!

Hey everyone, I've always flirted with the idea of overclocking my computer but never got around to it. My computer has been working pretty well the past year and a half, but its been pretty slow lately, so I was thinking of experimenting with it. If you guys can give me some advice and maybe point me in the right direction, it'd be great! I pretty much have no knowledge on OC'ing, so pardon my ignorance :pt1cable:

I've got an Athlon 64 X2 4000+ 2.1ghz on a Gigabyte GA-MA69GM-S2H AM2 AMD 690G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with 2gb of ram. I'm thinking I want to overclock it a little bit to where i get more out of it, but am not pushing it too hard either...any suggestions? I'm planning to install windows 7 home OS on it as well, will it run 7 smoothly (before and after OC?). Thanks ahead!
