Hey welcome to the site. Check out the FAQs Section (link in my signature). Overclocking is best done through the BIOS. It's best to start small and keep increasing by small incriments. Up the FSB frequency about 5MHz at a time ( I think for your board it will be in the chipset option, but look around I, may be wrong), don't for get to test it. DL a program called prime95, that will put your cpu under load and really test the mem. If you fail a test up the vcore (a little). and/or the vdimm. Good luck and Enjoy the site =)

EDIT: Well after re-reading the post ^_* I saw what you were asking. It depends on what kind of core you have, but most 2800s I've come across are Bartons. With stock cooling you may be able to push a few hundred extra out but all chips overclock differently, there is no definative answer I could give. It's a trial and erro thing. Again Good luck.
