Would you download cpuz and post a screenshot of the cpu tab. I am guessing you have an E2160 now and if I am right you could overclock your current cpu and might not need to get a new one.

You just said... you had a Pentium 4.... Thats a Core 2 Duo...

so just upgrade your current system...

A video Card is probably limiting you and your crappy board might stop you from overclocking..
