Firstly for you cpu, i dont know what speed that ram is so ill tell you how i have mine set for 3.0GHz (over 12 hours orthos tested & rock stable)

In the jumperfree config in your bios.

CPU Frequency [333]
DRAM Frequency [667MHz] (1:1 ratio)
Memory Voltage [1.95v]
CPU Voltage [1.2750v]

the graphics card is the really easy part, use rivatuner v2.01 to overclock! ... you could even flash the cards biso like i have so the card runs a good speeds without even using and 3rd party tool!

raise your fsb 10% then test (using orthos) then raise 3mhz ,test, raise 3mhz test etc ,till it blows up ,then lower your fsb.

Sorry ,before it blows up you'll get a fault ,then lower the fsb and think about adjusting your voltages.

Im raising my fsb 2-4mhz a day till I start smelling the smoke they put in there.

1.2750 for 3.00ghz is better than any listed on that hard forum core2 overclock chart thingy well done.
http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1138241 a good reference

Im off to lower my NB
