I'll check can they have it with 9000 series, if not I'll keep the e8400 I guess, but one question:

How do you overclock a CPU :P?

Theres two ways of overclocking. Through software within Windows, or hardware through BIOS. Overclocking through the BIOS is the best way, and it's a process of increasing the FSB in increments, stress testing, and increasing again. We can explain more of that later. Or you can google the tons of guides available for overclocking Intel processors.
