You might try the EVGA Precision Tool, I've got it working on a XFX video card.

Most graphics cards don`t overclock well (maybe a few percent). Considering that it is very low-end for a game card don`t expect much.

If your system could handle it, even $100 for an HD4770 or similar card would make a massive difference versus the 8400GS.

An HD4770 would be limited by an X2-4800+ but if I was on a budget and had such a CPU or higher I`d likely get the HD4770. Check prices and benchmarks to calculate the best value.
