You can adjust your Front Side Bus via your BIOS. By overclocking your FSB, you are also overclocking processor speed.

Theres probably a few things wrong with trying to do what youre doing:-

1 - Your ram wont be able to cope with the high frequencies. thus making the pc unstable.

2 - You probably have an awfull aluminium heatsink on the processor which wont be able to cope with the heat chucked out by the processor causing the pc to become unstable or go into "automatic thermal protection" and turn off.

3 - The PSU probably wont be able to cope with the extra power needed to feed the overclocked computer, probably ending up in it blowing and you having to buy another one.

4 - Its a dell, most ot them have locked bios' and most clockgens dont work with the motherboards. This means that overclocking isnt really possible with them.

If you want more speed, buy a new computer or add to the ram, because that Dell isnt going to overclock at all :x

actually, around 2.5 times less than buying a dell. my computer costed me 2000$ when it was built by myslf[ not really, bought the aprts and had someone else do it] but on dell, the same specifications [or of equal performance] came out to around 7k, without a monitor keyboard or soundsystem.
