Just read up on what overclocking is and how it affects the different components. Light overclocking is usually never a problem, but I would suggest studying a bit about voltage control before attempting voltage boosting for higher clocks.

That sounds like a CPU limitation... Do you have an FX6300 or something?

Any upgrade will cost quite a bit of money. For now you should just live with it, and when you can afford something like
