What you have is an Intel Celeron processor and 256MB RAM, unless you've upgraded. What's weird is that it's even 184-pin RAM, which I haven't seen in a while. I really don't think your system is overclockable at all. Your motherboard will very surely not have the features for it as EMachines was not exactly known as an enthusiast brand. You may be able to fit modern motherboard in there as the original is Micro ATX, if I remember correctly, or maybe they used their own proprietary form-factor.
*edit* wow! you joined this site a LOONG time ago, didn't you? lol.
Have to disagree on that one.
Have two PII's sitting in my closet at 1.3 and 1.4 gig.
PIII's and not Celerons and they could do the same thing.
Started life as a V350 and a R450. BX boards.
Dell didn't like it as we were on the Dell forums at the time and pretty sure
we cost them a few dollars.
Even tried to ban us from the forums and were deleting alot of our posts
Took one from 350 to 750 then 1.3.
The 450 followed.
Ram limitations were the problem as believe ended at 512 mhz.
And 100&133 mhz front side bus.
V350 limited to Pci video cards.
R450 was AGP.
Still have a couple new, I believe 256 mhz sticks of ram we tried to upgrade to the 1 gig
area but just slowed the two systems down.
But they were very cheap to buy at that time.
Have the PIII stickers that came with the chips on the cases that sort of confused a few people
since they were PII's.
Back then were the top of the heap for a couple months. lol.
Can Still play the older games on them, win 98se 16 and 32 bit style.
