You don't have to be a douche about it, there are differences.
Everything is pretty much
the same. The differences is with the faster DDR2 RAM (I'm assuming you're upgrading from S939, not AM2). The faster frequencies mean you will need to use different combinations of the multiplier and FSB speeds than you're probably used to, but you should be able to get the hang of it soon.
There are tons and tons of threads on how to over clock a C2D, do a little searching and you should find all the answers you need.
Make sure you get a good cooler though, something like the Zalman CNPS9500...C2D's can run pretty warm.
