It depends on how stable your mobo is, your cooling, and your ram. Your ram would considerably hold you back since you coudlnt use a 1:1 ratio. Also what is your core.

if its a Athlon XP-M, it can be overclocked like crazy. if not, it can still be overclocked. Just make sure you dont fry anything and dont buy cheap RAM.

You can OC it till it fries and then you buy a new faster motherboard and CPU!
If its' not broken, don't fix it!

look at sig, hehe. Not bad for a 55 CPU

I bet it still stacks up pretty well to current CPU's, athough, not the fastest by any means.
