Welcome to the forum, I will be moving your post to he AMD area of the forums so you get some more exposure there.

***EDIT

I suggest downloading clockgen from www.cpuid.com/clockgen

It will help get you started with OC'ing.

Now for the basics. Look at DeathONator's AMD Overclocking Guide, it will help familiarize you with some of the terms that are used on this site.

You're system runs at 200FSB with a multiplier of 9. This gives you a clock speed of 1.8GHz.

In order to overclock, you'll need to raise your FSB slowly, usually in max increments of 5MHz. So, you'll end up trying 205FSB...which would give you a speed of 1.845...if the computer boots up normally, you can try 210..and so on.

Overclocking is an iterative process, meaning its not just "set it and forget it"...you'll need to try many different combinations.

The bad things about overclocking is that it is not for a weak system, and it generates alot of heat.

Better cooling for your CPU is REQUIRED for overclocking.

The secret being 50 degrees C at load is a good number to stay close to or below.

Thats all I got for now...try doing a forum search for "AMD 64 2800"

Ask away.

I've managed to push mine up to 250x9. Thats 2.250GHz. But its different for each person, so just try, take it slow, and let us know what happens!

is the 2800 multi 9?

I have a 3000+ and My multi is 10

I've clocked mine to 2.4ghz on stock cooling

yes please read death's guide

raise fbs as Xavier said

if you can raise your multi to 10

if you start to get stuck up that CPU Vcore voltage .25 or so
