Stuck with X2 5000, upgrade/overclock Phenom?

I used to be a professor and use my computer to study CS and work.
sadly I have an X2 5000 and one RAM chip failed so I was thinking of upgrading to a Phenom X6/X4 or overclocking with 4GB DDR2/DDR3. how much would that cost?
it's pretty risky to increase the voltage or cpu clock as that could burn your components forever?

Critical Overclocking Programs you’ll need:

CPU-Z: add link to program download
ClockGen: add link to program download and information program for chipset and maybe tutorial
Memtest86: add link to program download

Very good information !!
Suggestion: some screenshots of the software to go with the information (examples)
Thank You
