If your motherboard supports it, your cooler, PSU, and motherboard can handle it, and you read a good guide, you could overclock that CPU to improve its performance.

I agree with blazorthorn, the processor is capable of being pushed harder, however I don't know that it would be cost effective nor whether your hardware can accomplish it.

Even if you do manage to accomplish it, I don't know if you will feel a very large increase in performance. You may end up putting forth a lot of effort and not experiencing much if any gain.

I don't know much about this game specifically, but I think they mean a processor that comes standard at 3.2 GHZ.

If you tell me your motherboard, I might be able to tell you if there is a cheap processor that will fit in it and which is at least 3.2 GHZ by default.

I don't think the one you have will be able to do what is required, even if you could make it reach 3.2 GHZ, but I would like to at least help you to find out if you could get one that would work cheaply and easily.
