Specs: Windows 7, Intel pentium(R) dual core E5500 @ 2.80/2GB DDR3
I have an Intel pentium(R) dual core E5500 @ 2.80 Giga Hertz with DDR3 2 GB Ram. In dxdiag my display memory is shown 782 mb. My mother board is Asus P5G41T-M LX. How can I increase my processor speed from 2.80 to 3.2 or 3.06 Giga Hertz. It will speed up gaming performance.I don't have any external graphics card. Many games run on my pc but too slow (like Avatar). So will increasing my cpu speed help me playing Games smoothly ? Or Can an external graphics card can fix this problem ? Any thing more u want to know plz tell and thnx in advance :)

Overclocking CPU will help to boost FPS if video card is available, u need a good gaming video card.

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.

Disable Speedstep
Lock PCIe at 100
Raise Freq from 200 to 333 but lower multiplier from 14 to 9 and when stable, then to 10.
You had Freq.200x14=2800MHz=2.8GHz and 200x4=800FSB
This way you will have 333x9=2997MHz=3.0GHz initially and 333x10=3333MHz=3.33GHz with 333x4=1333FSB which is the maximum your board supports. Getting it stable with a multiplier at 11 is possible, but I would not recommend it for gaming or with stock cooling and you would need additional vcore voltage. If you get a stable OC at 9 but not at 10 (miltiplier) then try raising your vcore voltage a small notch or two.
You have not listed your memory so I can only recommend to go for a Ratio of 1:1 or 1:2 so that would be 333x2(DDR) or 667MHz; or 333x2x2 or 1333MHz if your memory will reach there.

Please note that you will see an even greater gaming performance improvement if/when you purchase a decent gaming video card, just make sure your power supply can handle the card you purchase, or upgrade that at the same time (look for only ONE 12 volt rail and 80% efficiency or more and probably 500 or 600watts depending on the card you choose).

ahh sorry ! I tried locking PCIe @ 100 and increased freq to 333. But I don't see any multiplier option and I couldn't disable speedstep.... idk where they are ?

Is your motherboard a separate purchase or part of a custom rig, OR is it from a manufactured system (HP,Dell,Gateway)? Or possibly a store brand? If this machine is a manufactured system, or a system made for a store, your BIOS will not have the options to overclock it. If so then you are out of luck as far as OC'ing is concerned. IF you can fit a decent graphics card, you have the power supply to power it, you still may achieve reasonable gaming performance at slightly lower settings, but much better than you have now.
If not then save up to get or build a true gaming machine.

in the jumperfree configuration the cpu overclocking menu has three options. 1.auto 2.manual 3.overclocking profile. I tried manually but does not work. So if i set the profile @ 20% it increased my cpu freq @ 3.36 GHz & fsb @ 964 or something. I found the speedstep & disabled it but where is the multiplier ? And what about the voltage and vcore settings ?

They will not be available unless you are on the manual settings, if they are there at all, but if they offer overclocking options, then it really should be there.
