This PSU is somewhat decent, actually. It's not a good PSU, but it's not a bad one. You can probably do some overclocking, but I'd stick to mild or medium overclocks as opposed to shooting for a big overclock. The problem I'm seeing is its power deliver might be a little too unstable.

Anyway, your CPU doesn't have to be overclocked. I don't know what the best driver is. For me, the best driver is the most recent driver that doesn't give me any problems. So that means it might not be the most recent driver, but instead it will be the most recent possible because sometimes the most recent driver can cause problems - especially if the driver was release in order to add support for the next generation of GPUs.

I'm not sure, unless you can afford a new one without any problem. Now, if you had the plain GX instead of the Bronze (completely different platform), then I'd probably be recommending that you replace it ASAP before overclocking. You have the Bronze series, so it's the kind of situation where I would only replace it if you can afford it no problem.

He's saying you can do 4.3-4.5 but you shouldn't go for anything higher.

If your GPU is at 100% load but your CPU is at 60% then you have a GPU Bottleneck and vice versa.

Overclock the bottleneck, but not too far as you are limited by your PSU.
