What sort of gaming are you doing? Any source engine game should be playing fine. That card is pretty old and dated so it should be replaced if you are playing any game that is more intensive than tf2. A PCI-E 1.1 motherboard wouldn't really bottleneck a 2.1 card. Especially a card that isn't all that good to begin with.

Overclocking your GPU varies on many things. The biggest factors being:

- your GPU cooler itself; most low-end cards are equipped with the bare minimum of cooling in order for it to run properly at stock clocks; overclocking is not usually in mind (especially if you are using the reference AMD cooler which most of them are notoriously terrible)

- GPU voltage (if it's locked then you can't overclock it)

- Power supply: even though you have a lower-end card your PSU is probably quite old. I would recommend getting a newer one unless it's a very high quality unit.

Even if you purchase a new CPU and motherboard it will still not enable you to overclock your GPU. Unfortunately if your GPU is not up to par with your expectations you'll have to upgrade. I wish more could be done. Even if it could overclock I would only realistically expect a 3-6% increase in performance as most games are not limited by clock speed anymore but instead by bandwidth and architecture efficiency.

You would be better off upgrading your gpu to a 750 ti or similar than upgrading your CPU, that 6670 be holding back everything.
