From the research I have done it seems there are two pieces of information that may or may not help you....

One is that the newest version of the BIOS may unhide the overclocking options on your machine.

Check here http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/DG965...

Two there is software that may be able to overclock your system with out going into the BIOS at all but this software can cause problems ranging from instability to just plain not working (well Ocing is always risky when it comes to stability but thats a given)

Not having messed with the software end of OCing in a while I cannot even tell you what program you need to search for. I know back in the day I used to do something with the PLL timer or something

Edit: Maybe this will help some.

Edit 2: It may also be possible to hack your BIOS to unhide the overlocking options too but that is a topic even more advanced then OCing in the first place. (at least in my opinion even with some of the newer tools its still a pain to get right)

Don't try to overclock. Pentium 4 archtechure is not good for daily use. It consumes alot of power with a minimal return in speeds. It's best to save money for a cheap am3 rig(athlon II/sempton 140) + cheap 785g mobo + ddr3/2 should be under 300

Pentium D915 is fine for OCing its a close relative of the Pentium D805 and that was an OCing monster.

I remember my D805 hitting a stable 4Ghz (its still running to this day at that speed)

Jonthan seems to have given a better answer, bt b4 i hav this thread tagged as solved... my rig is nearly 3 yrs old (if i rmmbr) , so the question here now is should i overclock.

Oh and keep in mind that i'd get a graphics card in the nex month, ati 4850/5770(mayb) - will i run into a bottle neck wid them?

ubernoobie is right, even at 7ghz (LN2) a Core 2 at ~2.4/E6600 creams it - time for a new rig.

These people seem to have little experience with dual core Pentium's (its not surprising to be honest they came out at a bad time with the Core2Duo hitting and competing against the superior Athlon 64)

But to be honest even an old Pentium D805 once OCed could play any game out these days, people telling you that it can't play games are under the impression that games are CPU constrained (99% of them are not) while a single core anything will hold you back and a stock speed Pentium D will probably be somewhat of a bottle neck once you OC them they can do just fine. Yeah you may get a few more FPS if your running an i5 or i7 VS an old Pentium D but thats buying a whole new rig VS OCing your old one and popping in a video card.

For proof just check the minimum requirement's for even something like Far Cry 2

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/gaming/2008/08/08/far-cry-...

Your machines CPU is listed directly in the minimum spec with no OCing. Throw a nice OC on that thing and it will do quite nicely. Now typically the minimum specs on a game are a joke but I find the CPU one is usually less important then the rest of the numbers (RAM and Video card being even more important)

On a more important note the OP asked about OCing a rig, not "Should I buy a new computer?" Anything beyond that is not helping the OP with his question.

I would answer to the best of my ability even if some one came in here and asked how to OC a 440BX chipset :p 

Merry Christmas everyone !!! :)

Thanx again bro!

I'm went through the 2nd option - i came across SetFSB - its a porgram that lets u set ur FSB on the fly...i think. Problem here is : how do i use it(am a noobie)?

Well on this note things get a little complex since I do not know exactly what your seeing when you run SetFSB :( 

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/242338-29-intel-dg965...

Amazingly this thread has the exact information you need, seems like people are having better results with SetFSB then Clockgen (older software that I recognize)

Just a quick read there and you should be on your way :) 

Edit: The PLL chip for yours is CV174CPAG at least according to that article I linked. I hope this helps :)
