Yes you can, with your dual core only one 4 pin(ATX) is really needed anyways. 8pin(EPS) is mainly for quad core CPU's and overclocking(even then 4 pin will probably be enough, it'll just deliver cleaner power, also).

how far can i overclock with this setup
20A on 12V
That depends on how well your CPU overclocks, you're not going to be bound by your power supply.

You have 240W on the 12V rail, by the way.
