Which games? Unfortunately overclocking that CPU won't do much for most recent games.

First off, welcome ocn. Please fill in your system specs, and what you plan on using it for.
The 4000+ is not a very powerful chip, but with the right graphics card should be ok for some mid level games.

I have a 9500GT, actually I am not a gamer I just some times play few games.

But till now all games that I have tried have run on my PC smoothly, no frame drops.

Like Crysis 2,Bad Company 2, etc.

All I can say it's pretty old chip to remember how it performs with OC but I think you can hit 2.6 easy
do some homework before you get some changes on that chip

What do you consider 'good'? I play Crysis 1 on medium-high settings with no AA and get around 30fps.
I don't see how you could get playable frame rates with the settings you mentioned with that hardware.
