Help with Overclocking

Hi I have the Intel I5 2500k on a Intel extreme series DP67BG Mobo. I have a 750 watt psu and a 8gb ram. I think the ram is corsair. I have the Gigabyte nvidia geforce 560 ti. I only have the stock fan on the intel i5 and there are fans built in on the gpu. I have a full tower case that I think can fit pretty much anything and has some built in fans. I have been having some frame rate issues and wanted to overclock my cpu and gpu. I know overclocking is harder on the gpus so first off could I overclock the gpu. 2nd will I need to buy a cpu cooler to overclock it and if so what should I get. Third how would I overclock and finally what should I overclock them to. Also with these parts what you recommend for settings on BF3 multiplayer. Any help would be great.

P.S. Could I have two gtx 560's in this pc at once.

    You may want to even look into a liquid cooling system
