The general consensus is to stay away from the orbs but since you already have it...

what are your current temps like?

if they are good then go ahead and overclock and then watch your temps. If they get to high then just go back to the default speed, and buy a better cooler.

The Super Orb is good for stock cooling and moderate overclocking for AMD CPU's under 1GHz.

Is this any good for overclocking my Duron 750 AKCA

That airflow may keep you from getting a good overclock. What is the name of the fan on it?
