Try setting your cpu fsb from 533 (may also be 1066) to 666 (or 1333, depending on your bios) first, and set your memory ratio to 1:1.66, and see how stable your system is. No point in buying more ddr2 when your old ram may give you some overclocking options and your next board will likely require ddr3. You may also bump up your cpu voltage by .1 volts without hurting the cpu.
