Overclocking my system.

Hello,
I'm looking for better performance out of my system but i really wanted to know what the necessities are in order to overclock.

Here is my specs:

AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition CPU
ASUS M5A97 AM3+ ATX Mobo
Corsair Vengeance 2 x 4gb Memory

I'm also looking to buy a psu because the one I have now has very low wattage. If you have any reccomendations there that would be great too.

    What graphics card do you have in there? That will influence PSU decision.
    You're going to want to get an aftermarket cooler. I think a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO should work.

    Well i was looking to upgrade to a 7870 ghz edition card. I have a 550ti in there now.
  4. What's your budget for the PSU, you'll want at least 500W. A power supply by Antec, SeaSonic, Corsair or XFX should work fine in there
