Overcloking, what is it?

I have a 4 year-old computer with W2k and DDR 2100MB/s

The advanced chipset features in the BIOS offers a choice of four different FSB namely: 100,133,166, and 200 MHz.

If I were to tick and save the 200MHz option to replace the current 133 MHz and change the DDR to3200 MB/s, would I be overcloking?

Is there any reason why I should not upgrade this machine in this simple manner?

PS: the processor is an AMD Athlon XP 2000

Yes but it wouldn't work as your memory isn't fast enough.

Thank you for your reply.

Changing the FBS to 200 MHz and memory to 3200 MB/s ?

Changing FBS to 133 MHz and DDR to 2700 MB/s?

The offer is tempting and it looks harmless, but I speak as someone who is ignorant on this matter.
