Hi, quick question

I've been looking to overclock my new cpu, and i've been doing my research and i came across any tutorials and i see their BIOS have lots of settings for this, and i dont. My rig is slowly being upgraded and i was wondering is my motherboard too old or is there something i'm missing?? Actually, can my rig be overclocked?? My rig's specs are:

Mobo: Gigabyte GAM61PME-S2P rev. 1.0, BIOS rev F7b(beta)
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1075T (not Black Edition)
RAM: 4GB DDR2
OS: Windows XP & 7; Ubuntu, BlackBuntu, BackTrack 4
Video Card: Sparkle GeForce 9500GT ( i know i need an upgrade)

Also, i've found the AMD overclocking utility, AMD Overdrive, and installed it, and it cannot find a AMD cpu on my system, is it not supported or what??

Any help is appreciated, thanks

you have linux and windows?
if you do this on de commandline:
dmesg
you see all your hardware?
windows is just trouble, and is nonfree just delete it.
maybe in virtualbox some virtual windows machines just for pen-testing.
if you have a windows running, it can destroy your linux.(by windows or virus)
windows has a behavior that it can overwrite your bootsector, jou won't be able to boot linux from that disk.
overclocking?
you need a lot of cooling, and good overclock ram.
you never need those overclock tools, just go to your bios and change the processorspeed.
sometimes in value sometimes % or mostly a number.
overclock first 5%, but the voltage a litle higher
than stress test, if stable and not to hot you can go higher.
there are good overclock tools in linux
ones you need is nvclock, computertemp, and cpuburn for stresstesting.
gpu needs an update, if you want to use the streamprocessors for cracking passwords or running ladspa pluggins on it.
beter an gtx 560 than keep your 9500 and overclocked system.
a 9500 has 32 slow streamprocessors, an gtx 560 more than 300 fast ones.
and they don't cost a s***.
