    you're probably not going to notice anything significant in the performance dept. the 2600+ is a single core processor and your motherboard is not built for stable overclocking. the only 2600 that is worth attempting to overclock is the mobile version, but even so the architecture on those chips is so outdated and any gains will be superficial.
