I broke down and bought it

I have bought a 3.0c 800fsb at Newegg to put in my p4pe-x but as I understood it I had to have pc3200 ram to make it work 800 fsb on the p4pe-x. I did not want to buy a pc3200 ram till I got the p4c800-e deluxe MB because later on I want to find the 3.0C's O/C limit. So I went back to Newegg and ordered the p4c800-e dlx. Now I will have to use my Corsair XMS pc2700 ( money issue ) till I can afford some better ram.
The question is:
With the 3.0C + p4c800-e dlx MB + Corsair XMS pc2700, how much if any O/C results could I expect with a lower cpu/ram divider? For instance 5:4.
I have had the Corsair XMS ram to 191mhz (3:4) at 2.5,3,3,7 prime error free. It may even go higher.

Dell e1705 --> 2.0ghz T7200, 256mb Vidia Go 7900gs, 2Gb GSkill DDR 2 PC 5300, Win XP Media Edition
Asus P5E --> Q6600 G0 VID 1.2875 @ 3.6ghz ( 1.40V), ASUS EAH6970 2GB, G.SKILL 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 , Western DigitalCaviar SE 320 GB, Swiftech H2O Ultra, Corsair HX 620W, Soundblaster Audigy 2, Win XP Home
