Default Overclocking on a LGA 775 Platform

I've got this older computer that I'd like to overclock and tweak to get a little more performance out of, the problem is I have no idea how overclocking works with the parts this thing has.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 @ 2.66 GHz
Motherboard: ASUS P5N-D
Video Card: XFX HD 5870

Here's a screenshot of the current setup:



I'd like to call attention to GPU-Z saying my 5870 is running at 900 MHz core clock, while both CPU-Z and ATI Overdrive says the core clock is running at 400 MHz. What's going on? How do I overclock this CPU and memory so I can milk out some more performance? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

-Edit: Also 400 MHz on the memory? Is that normal?
