You should be able to oc with that Asus board, unless it came from a prebuilt rig (HP, Dell, etc.), but if there is an option to change the FSB in the BIOS, then the mobo is overclockable. If I have the same CPU as you (P4 Northwood 2.6ghz 800fsb w/HT), and have gotten it at 3.06ghz (235FSB x 13multiplier) stable, limiting factor in my case would be the temp as I am using stock cooling.
