Default Newb Question

Hey, now that i have all the hardware figured out and put together, i think that i will now try to overclock some things. From what i have read, i should go into the BIOS and change the voltage and the FSB multiplier and stuff. When i go into my BIOS, it says that 11x is the most that i can go to and have no other choices other than lower. Is there a program that could do it for me without doing it in the bios then?

Sorry, i know all of you are probably tired of answering quiestions for me and you most likely get this one alot

My mobo is MB ASUS M2V VIA K8T890 AM2
CPU AMD|A64 X2 4200+ AM2 2x512K
RAM 2GB (1Gx2)|G.SKILL F2-5400PHU2
GPU PNY GeForce 7600 GT 256MB PCIe w/Dual DVI

How much better could i make the processor with the retail fan on it. Right now i think that it is running at about 40C. Same question about the gpu, would it be worth it?

Thanks in advance guys,
