Well, dont go too crazy with the voltages (dont go over 1.48v and stuff like ppl do on those >$200 boards, dont stick an i7 in it and expect to be hitting 5+ghz, and make sure you have adequate airflow over it. I personally like to ziptie a small 40mm fan to the mosfet heatsink where possible. it looks easy enough on your board. Just make sure you dont go crazy with the volts. At least it isnt a 4+1 phase board. I believe its a split 3+1 phase board, where you have two 3+1 power phases sharing the load. Its an OK setup, but it will be slightly iffy for overclocking. just be careful.

get a different mobo?

Its not that bad of a board. he just needs to be a little more careful with it than other boards. remember, an i5 will run fine at 4.6ghz on that board. it only draws 100w or so at 1.35v

MSI makes decent Intel boards, AMD is a different story.
With any kind of overclocking you're taking risks anyways. It's good to be smart about it though.

According to this list your motherboard has a 6phase design.
The or as the above poster says, a split 3+1
4.5GHz Should be easy. As with the above poster, this board isn't designed for extreme OCs

return the 6970 and bump it up to a 6990 or get a second SSD and raid them or get a better mobo.

Or you can give it to me so I can get a better mobo or a video card which i lack.

MSI boards have a bad history. Give this thread a read. http://www.overclock.net/t/943109/about-vrms-mosfets-motherboard-safety-with-125w-tdp-processors

Oh shut up...

The link you have posted is about older boards, not only those from MSI and 125W parts from -> AMD <-. If you look at the list, you mostly see MSI boards that are worth 60$ housing a 6 core running at more than 4GHz. This is not MSI's fault but instead the user's fault if you decide to cheap out. MSI's new boards that are designed with overclocking/enthusiasts in mind (The GD ones,not the C or G series) all have sufficient VRMs (even the 990FX AMD boards). Also, the 6+2 power phases are perfectly fine since MSI decided to use higher quality VRMs instead of more cheaper VRMs.

Basically, the GD53/GD55/GD65/GD80 boards are perfectly safe so don't listen to that guy and his "horror" stories.
