Mother board: Asus M2N-E
RAM: 1 GB DDr2@667MHz Corsair Memory Module (Model: VS1GB667D2)
HDD: 320 GB SATA2 Maxtor

Any sugestions to get the most of this are welcome.

Just so happens I have a M2N-E here. 4600+ overclocked to 2.66 GHz.
Get out your motherboard manual...
In the BIOS:
Set AI Overclocking to Manual
Set DRAM configuration to your rated memory speed (DDR2-667)
Chipset - Set HTT speed to 4x
Set PCI-E speed manually to 100 MHz
With your memory and PCI-E locked, start increasing the CPU Frequency
setting a bit at a time. Test for stability along the way (Orthos, Prime95,
etc.). You can try raising CPU and DRAM voltages to improve stability.
FWIW, you're near the top of the range with your 5600+, so don't expect too
