Default Overclocking Assistance

Hello, I have recently purchased a new PC and wish to try out overclocking for the first time ever.

I have spent the last two hours or so reading up on the subject, but I still have no idea to what extent I can overclock my system without frying it.

I wish to OC my system to an average level, not so that I'll need immense amounts of cooling, but so an improvement is noticeable.

I would be grateful if anyone here could help me out... Information on what I should OC my system to would be appreciated, along with as much help as possible on how to do so.

Thank you in advance.

CPU: Intel E6600 Core2Duo 2.40GHz 1066MHz FSB, 4MB Cache
Motherboard: Asus P5N32-E SLi NF680i S775
Graphics Card: PCI-E(x16) 640MB EVGA GF8800 GTS ACS3 Mem 1700MHz, GPU 580MHz
PSU: 600W ENERMAX EG701AXVE 2PCIE (Will this be adequate?)
Hard Drives: 150 GB WD RAPTOR X 10000 RPM (x2)
RAM: 4Gb (2x2Gb) CorsairTwinX XMS2, DDR2, PC2-6400 (Memory Speed: 800), CAS 5-5-5-18, EPP
