Default How much I could overclockt his POS cpu/mb?

Would be an interresting cheap expiriment in OC. Never done it before...I'm not much for the whole spending money on computers. My current POS pc serves me fine, and I was on celeron 600mhz system before it until it basically fell part on me.

Antec 300 Illusion
430w Antec Earthwatts
AMD Q4 640 Propus
2x4gb Patriot DDR3 1333
750gb Seagate 7200.11 Hard Drive

i say 4.0ghz. but i dont know. your sh**ty ram could inhibit you. or, if your mobo is so sh**ty, it could hold you back. your sh**ty stock psu may be a problem as well. hopefully your p4 isn't so sh**ty as you say.
if you dont care about it, overvolt it, crank up the clock, and watch it melt. then, buy a computer that is not so sh**ty.

and take the heatsink off! Actually I have seen Dells with Prescotts on stock settings melt. The smell of burning silicon is terrible!.
