You don't need to learn how to overclock. You need to add some more memory (RAM) and a video card.

✔ Best Answer
Agreed. Overclocking isn't going to make up for having too little RAM (not to mention the wrong speed RAM), plus the fact that you're using weak onboard graphics that are sucking up 64MB of what little RAM you have.

You should have at least 2GB RAM for decent gaming performance, more would be even better. And the RAM should be DDR2-800, not DDR2-533. You should also add a gaming video card.

Here's a few links to help you out:

If you have the money, you may want to consider a cheap ($57) CPU upgrade:

And if you have a weak low wattage power supply, here's a 600W Corsair for $35 after rebate & $10 off code:
