definatley OC!!!

http://www.overclock.net/overclock.p...king-guide.htm

it will help you get started and answer some of your questions...

and right now a little performance defficientcy your system has is only having 512mb of ram... up that to 1gb and youll notice a good boost in performance.... but definately still OC

yeh, go for the oc, it should make a nice difference.

once you oc it, run a program like super pi to check if its stable, no errors (crashing) means you can oc a little more but watch your temps

try to buy some better ram, something like 1GB G.Skill (2x512mb)

Of course go with the OC, after all this is overclock.net. Once you start ocing, there's no looking back!
