Default Help optimizing new build please.

I've searched the forums here, the manufacturers forums and did the regular google searching but I am still unsure of how to get the most out of my new system I just built. I've tried a few things and it seems that I kept messing up my system and screwing up the settings. I really don't want to fry my new build, so I thought I would be cautious and consult the experts.

I'm not looking to significantly overclock anything, I just want to make sure I am at least getting the most out of my stock hardware. The only thing I would probably like to overclock is the CPU E2180 to 2.2 or 2.4 ghz.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

My basic hardware rundown:

Intel e2180
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Rev. 2 updated bios
Western Digital WD6400aaks
Antec Earthwatts 500
8600gt 256
4gb (4 x 1gb) OCZ SLI-Ready DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel 5-5-5-15 timing 2.1v-2.3v #OCZ2N1066SR2GK

I couldn't take a screen shot of my bios so I wrote the important (at least I think) information currently set into my bios. They are in order per menu. Please let me know if you need any more info:
