In the clock control page of nTune, the bar for PCI express bus says 2500MHz... I guess I just assumed that the AGP bus would be close to as fast and maybe as easy to overclock.

Wish you'd mentioned that before... PCIe is a completely different architecture than PCI (on which AGP is based) and works nothing like PCI in that regard.

From what you have now, an Athlon 64 (and an athlon 64 only, not an athlon XP or anything) would be a pretty worthwhile upgrade. Altough, if you want the best bang for your buck, I would go with the 3500+ if you can stretch your budget enough. Although, if you're into overclocking (which you appear to be), then a 3200+ is great.
