I did a search of the board model & came up with ECS Max-MCP73V(HIS) which I suspect is an OEM board. ECS generally doesn't give its boards names like that so my guess is it's based on the GF7050VT-M. Does it look similar to this one?

If what you have is an OEM board, I doubt you'll be able to overclock. What make/model computer are you working with? Have you checked the BIOS settings to see if the FSB, PCIe, memory, & voltage settings can be changed? We also need to know what speed DDR2 RAM you have, plus 1.5GB isn't very much. Assuming you have Win7 32-bit, your system would run MUCH better with 3GB. Adding more RAM would produce much better results than overclocking the CPU. Adding more RAM, a decent video card, AND overclocking would be the trifecta!

If when possible it is generally a bad idea to overclock an OEM computer. These computers are lacking in just about everything needed for safe and effective overclocking. Manufacturers are well aware of this and generally omit the BIOS settings that would be necessary to do so. Overclocking is best confined to home built computers where you can control the quality and specifications of the components used.
