To be honest mate, o/c'ing would do little to your performance. Spending £200 on a decent PCI-express graphics card would send your performance through the roof (with games anyway, which I assume is what you're looking to increase the performance of).

New video card: case closed...

Seriously though, your video card could be replaced and your machine would be that much better. I overclock my processors all of the time, but if you don't have the hardware to support it, your overclock won't be at all noticeable.

How much money do you want to spend?

To give you an idea: I just purchased the X1800 XT (512MB) for a customer, cost $350.00.

You CAN'T overclock the CPU on that computer. You can, however, upgrade the video card. The X1800 and X1900 series are compatible with Your Dimension 9100.

If you are thinking about replacing your video card at this time, you may also want to consider getting a card with a bare minimum of 256MB of dedicated RAM to allocate for smooth functionality when Vista comes out. Also make sure the card supports Direct X 10 or above.

AGP is a dead technology and is being phased out by Motherboard manufacturers.

If you are investing in a video card, and have the slots to support it, go with PCIx (PCI Express)

Again, going by listed specs, there should not be any AGP slots in your machine.

The two I listed above, plus 3 legacy PCI slots.

Dimension 9100/9150 series has the above specs listed and does NOT have an AGP slot.

Your X300 SE card is in fact PCIe.
