I don't think a 955BE will hamper the performance of a 6850. Leave it as is and see how your games perform.

basically their is no need to overclock
955 can handle 6850 efficiently , it can also handle two 6850.
but their are some games that demands more cpu than gpu, then you should consider overclocking 955 (as it is a BE, made to be overclocked)
use task manager to determine whether you need to overclock 955 or not

I suggest you test both configurations.

Test your rig and games with all at stock settings and see the results, after that, overclock the CPU (3.8GHz+ or above) and run game again to compare the results against the stock ones. Choose the one that gives you better performance.
