Default Am i getting as much as i can from my system?

Hello, i have recently upgraded my old system to a fairly low cost but up to date one. I havent had much overclocking experience and was wondering if i was getting about what i should do, and maybe some tips on how to go further without buying new stuff if possible.

My system is:
Intel E2160 cpu @ 3.2ghz (356x9) running 1.5v
2gb Geil ddr2 800 (4-4-4-12) @ 712mhz (1-1 with cpu) running 2.1v
DFI Infinity P965 Dark mobo
Gecube HD2600xt 256mb ddr3
Auzentech X-Plosion soundcard
OCZ stealthxstream 600w psu

All stock cooling at the moment

I havent really been able to get the cpu running at this speed with the ram running faster, but maybe im doing something wrong. Im not sure whether its the ram or motherboard that is stopping me from doing so. Any help would be much appreciated.

That is fine. Its a good overclock and there is nothing wrong with the frequency that you are running your RAM at. Try to get the RAM timings down to 4-4-4-10 or maybe even 4-4-4-8.

If your system is struggling at gaming, then look into getting a new video card:

PowerColor HD 3850 256MB GDDR3 256bit Dual DVI PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer
MSI P35 Plat // 4GB DDR2 1033 // HD 4870 // Conroe C2D e6300 @ 2.5Ghz
