PEntium Dual Core E2180 Overclocking

Hi Guys

I'm also new to overclocking, butI'm working on a office PC that is just too slow to run the engineering software that I need to. I noticed that my display card leaves a lot to be desired, and I'm looking to replace that, but I also noticed a lot written about my Pentium Dual Core E2180 being overclocked. Its currently running at 2Ghz.

Can I get it faster with my hardware? What else would you recommend to give this PC a kickstart?

My PC on CPU-Z looks like this...

    I would put my cards in a better GPU. Even if you get the CPU to OC, are you going to get enough of a difference to make up for the software to work properly? I would guess the 400-800MHz you might squeeze out of the CPU isn't going to make the software run better. Work on a new GPU first.
