Wow my little bro has nearly the same exact system as you and is interested in purchasing BF4, I told him he might need to upgrade but from the looks of it his system can handle it on medium, that's pretty good.
In regards to the overclock, does your motherboard have an auto overclock feature? if so i'd set it to around 4.5 and leave it. If not you can probably get away with setting your multiplier to around 4.3 and not having to adjust your voltage. Anything over 4.3 will probably require you to start raising your voltages which is a whole nother thread in itself.
Here's a great guide for beginner overclockers
