Nobody can tell how far can an unlocked CPU go. You may reach 4Ghz, you may fail at 3.4. Your CPU really bottlenecks the GPU, but it not too badly.

There is a nice beginner Athlon II OC guide in my sig, see if it'd be useful Most of it you surely already know, but still there might be something to learn
