you can always oc it but honestly it doesnt really need it, the overall performance returns for the extra power consumption are IMO not really worth it.
its been shown lately that oc'ing the gpu isnt always gonna give you more fps in fact in some cases you will get less (not entirely sure why but it is an issue)

That CX will die under that load.

Here is a better PSU:

And you should use a dual channel kit for best performance. These DDR3-2400 Tridents are on sale:

C stands for "Corsair". X stands for "Do Not Buy".

Your CPU has a dual channel memory controller. If RAM is run in pairs it will have better bandwidth, and therefore better performance. AMD CPU needs all the help it can get especially for memory performance, so go with a dual channel kit of RAM (2 or 4 sticks, not 1 or 3).
