Have you read through the Intel overclocking guide? You can find a link to it in my signature. What kind of cooling do you have on your CPU?

Depending on how much your RAM can take, I'd say at least around 3.1-3.3. The nForce chipsets for Intel's haven't really been great overclocker's from what I've seen on the forums though. At this point in time, I think you're biggest limiting factor may be your RAM. What speed is it rated for?

No you don't. According to your CPUz screen shot you have a P4 640 which is rated for 2800MHz from the factory.

Edit: I retract my statement, the 640 is rated for 3.2GHz from the factory. It's weird that your CPU changed your multi on you.

It all depends on your board, your memory, your cooling, and your power supply. If it's all pretty decent, and you got a good chip, you could probably hit 3.3.

You might have been scammed. Did you even notice the frequency in the screenshot you posted?
