Overclocking is running your motherboard clock speed higher than the standard speed to achieve faster CPU, RAM and Chipset speeds.

Faster clock speeds mean a faster computer.

Same applies to your Graphics Card.

I.O.C. will allow software in the OS to OC your motherboard.

'Best of both'

SIMA cards with the CPU socket and chipset that allow you to use AMD or Intel CPU's. Never seen this before. Nice.

I9S (V1.0) SIMA card for Socket 479 for IntelŪ PentiumŪ M processors.

A4S SIMA card for Socket 754 for AMD Athlon™ 64/Sempron™ processors.

And the best SIMA card, the A9S, for Socket 939 for AMD Athlon™ 64/ Athlon™ 64 FX processors.

EDIT: So your running an Intel CPU at the moment?

One thing you could do would be to try and get the A9S SIMA card, a good Socket 939 AMD CPU and 2GB of DDR 500 RAM to get this going.

But if these parts are going to cost you a fair bit then leave it.

Having said that i've seen a few FX60, 4800+'s and PC4000 DDR RAM going cheap. So it just depends on the cost of the SIMA card.
