    An AMD procesor to 3.2GHz?
    GOOD LUCK!

    Moreover that PSU is crap, the motherboard has limited to no overclocking capabilities and the case fan is useless.

    No such thing as "recommended overclock rate".

    Any CPU will only go as far as the limit of the motherboard, PSU, RAM, temperature and itself.

    The highest an X2 3800+ AM2 65nm will reach is about 3GHz tops on air cooling (using a Scythe Ninja, Zalman 9500, Big Typhoon) on a DFI LANPARTY UT NF590, PC2-10000, decent PSU with solid rails (OCZ GameXStream, PC Power and Cooling Silencer or a Tagan or the sorts).

    I had thought about getting a DFI lanparty but its hard to find a mother board with AM2 and AGP.

    Budget users cannot make good overclockers. >.>
    Harsh but true.
    Look around you. Overclocking requires more expensive parts.

    true true xD

    So With this motherboard I should not over clock at all?

    I don't know if it has overclocking features, but if it does, you could probably hit 2.2GHz stable at most.
    To stabilize an overclock on crap boards, you have to jack up the voltage of everything and makes sure that you are using a good divider. But the thing is that on crap boards, RAM that would allow better dividers don't work due to their higher voltage requirements (2.2V for CL4 DDR2-800).

    I like how you using the term crap boards, I got a good chuckle out of that. I see thanks for the help again.

    Anything that's ECS, Biostar, ASRock, etc are automatically known as crap boards.
    ASUS is ASRock but they want the ASUS name to keep its good reputation and not to be associated with anything that's bad.
