First, read the Tutorial posted here.

Second because I know your going to ask anyways, Don't use programs to Overclock. Only use the BIOS. My bet is that IBM locked the BIOS so the likelihood that you can even overclock is unlikely. And another thing The geforce 6600 is very old. I had one in 2004. And the fact that you are running an odd quantity of ram tells me that you most likely aren't running dual channel so you are taking a performance hit on memory bandwidth.
