I'm going to buy an entire new set of computer parts soon so I might as well just OC my entire old crap right?

Your CPU isn't going to OC much, and your GPU DEFINITELY isn't going to lol, I used to have that card.........5 years ago :-p You might as well just keep your computer as a server or at least a spare.

To see what kind of ram and mobo, or other stuff you have, get a program called CPU-z. It should tell you, all that information.

I agree with kingaustin though. Your parts aren't going to OC much, but you could give it a shot.
