I've been reading alot about overclocking, but I am unsure as to what it means or how to do it. Also, is it safe to do without any experience or would it be better to just buy a more powerful processor?

Easy way: Spend money for a better stock processor.
Smart way: Buy cheap, overclock by yourself.

Overclocking for ever. It is really good and saves lots of $$$. I can beat a stock E6750 with this E6300 thanks to OCing.

I have the B2 stepping E6300. I hope to get to 3.6 once I figure how to raise the VCORE on this mobo.

After looking through newegg for the parts that vernong posted, I have found everything but am unsure of which of the couple options to choose when searching for the, 8800gts 320mb or 8800gt (in 6 days), or the Crucial Ballistix 2gb Kit.
