Firstly, take that information and fill out your specs. Click on "User CP" on the top of this page and you will see "Edit System Specs" on the left.

How many RAM sticks you have?

Your mobo is not a great OC'er. But you can get something out of it. I recommend you to use 2 sticks of RAM if you can get them to run dual channel. It is generally a good idea to stick with only 2 sticks.
Bump up your FSB. You won't get a lot. Only a few hundred MHz overclock.
Now get down and see what can we get !

Any mobo's that you would recommend that are relatively cheap that I could get more out of?

dj.. if you haven't done it already, you need to read through the overclocking guide. You can find it here:

Folks will be glad to answer any specific questions you have after you read that.

I've never done this b4, but I'm wanting to try and get the most out of what I've got. I've been going through that OCing guide, but I don't know if I need additional cooling or not. I've been thinking of getting additional cooling and/or a new CPU fan/heatsink/cooling unit, but I'm quite limited on my funds right now....trying to save up for wedding stuff. Any recommendations?

We can find you something but ...budget?
BTW, make sure you are using the latest BIOS version.
