  1. Your english isn't bad lol
    Overclocking that processor on a stock AMD fan wouldn't be that great of an idea. You don't really have a bottleneck but the weakest thing is your CPU.
  2. but do you think if i overclock my CPU can i get more frames per second in ur opinion?

    and THANK YOU VERY MUCH of ur assistance really it was helpful :P
  3. If you do overclock your CPU you would get a few more fps but not enough to really matter. I would suggest keeping the stock clock instead of overclocking and risking damaging your CPU. I overclocked my phenom x4 820 from 2.8ghz to 3.3ghz and noticed no difference in games at all.
