Overclock everything? or one thing?

Okay, so i'm a total noob when it comes to overclocking. I understand some of the basics however i want to learn more before i go messing around with my rig. First of all I understand that I can overclock a graphics card, CPU, and Motherboard.

So what i want to know is should I overclock all three of them? Or just one? And how will overclocking each benefit me? I understand pushing a CPU from 3.3 to say 4.0 will produce a significant increase in speed, however what exactly will happen if i overclock my graphics card or motherboard?

Thanks in advance for the help.
