I'm thinking of buying a AMD FX-8320 but if I do will it be efficient with my current graphics card?
If this is a dumb question I apologize this is my first time upgrading my CPU

Yes. In most games HD 7770 will be a bottleneck for FX 8320

Will it be unbearable?
If so, will overclocking my GPU help any?

Post more info about the GPU, there are GDDR3 and GDDR5 versions of 7770. I hope you got the GDDR5.

PS: actually that was 7750, my bad. You should have GDDR5 GHz edition, right?

Well it's not unbearable, you'll be able to play all games. I assume that intensive games will be playable on medium settings 1080p.

Hello!
You will be ok with this configuration I got it and work very well on all game, for example I play battlefield 3 @1600*900 with all the video settings on ultra I switched off only antialiasing and with vsync on(cause my refresh monitor is 60hz) I got stable gameplay and depend on map I got from 40 to 60 fps ;)
