Default Frequency/ voltage control in bios question.

I have the amd 64 2800+ with a gigabyte GA-K8NS pro mobod. CPU overclockin MHz. Should I leave this alone? Or can I increase it slightly without any ill effects?
AGP overclock goes from 66-100 mhz. What is your opion there?
I plan on leaving the cpu voltage an cpu vcore and other voltage controls alone for now. I am not a gamer but just want to know if I could see enhanced performance from the 2 above? Thanks.

Also what about the top performance section in bios? It is default disabled. Why would top performance not be enabled?

Do not, and I repeat, do not increase your AGP or PCI over 72mhz. 100mhz is way too high and will totally fry your board. Just make sure you have locked the AGP and PCU slots before increasing core voltage. You may also need to monitor your memory, chipset, bridge etc. temps the more you increase the voltage.

I decided as to my lack of knowledge on the subject to not do this and also top performance is a no go. But what about loading optimized defaults?
