iono how far you were wanting to overclock, but considering that board only supports fsb 333, your ram won't run at it's default speed which means you'll missing out, then again it's not a big matter... your chip is a 266, which means you can probably oc it to a 333fsb.. you're not going to get much outta your setup though...

I say sell everything and buy a new rig lol

ohh i couldn't really say.. i'd guess look at how much they are online and sell 'em for like 10-15 cheaper... or even less since they're used, good luck
