Default Beginner OC Questions

I'm new to the OC world and just finished my new build. I would like to pinch performance into my new PC but also want to keep it safe from heat.

AMD X2 4400+

I've successfully been able to OC this to 2.4 Ghz converting it into a AMD X2 4800+. I'm sure I can easilly go higher but these are expensive parts and I dare not kill it. Idle temp at 2.4 is 32-33C.

Geforce 7800

This one I'm not sure on how to OC

Also this is unrelated but does anyone know how to turn up fan speeds an the ASUS A8N Mobos I'm sure it's possible but I can't find it in the BIOS.
