How do you overclock it? It will take you a couple of weeks on this site to start learning that. There are hundreds of threads on this site to help you do it. Just do a search for an OCing guide. That's a good place to start. I would do a lot of reading to get the basic idea of OCing before you do anything with your rig. Other than that it is a lot of trial and error. Experiment with different things. But most of all make sure your motherboard and otehr components are acceptable for OCing.

Your current system looks like you will be able to do some moderate gaming. It's not a barn burner but will be adequate for playin games.

Welcome to OCN.
