Is this lga 775 motherboard capable of overclocking?

I have a q6700 and on my current motherboard i know that i cannot overclock. In bf3 my cpu is my bottleneck so i want to get i new mobo so i can play in 64 player servers. I live in new zealand and the only online shop that sells a cheap lga 775 board is this one

I dont know how much i need to overclock but will this be able to get me to 3.4ghz? I have never overclocked before. I would prefer a matx board because my case is small.

    The board should allow you to overclock but since you mention a small case I am guessing you don't have an aftermarket CPU cooler? You will need one to overclock.

    Yeah i will probably get one along with a new case in the future. Thanks
  4. Sure. The best cheap cooler is the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo. It probably runs expensive there since it seems all computer parts are in NZ but here in the US it is generally $30.
