P67 chipset boards can overclock , but they cant access the graphics on your processor

your processor cant overclock

An H61 based motherboard is the budget choice , or you should move to Z68 or Z75/77

Generally Id rather have a Radeon 6850 than a 550 ti

You will need a 4- 500 watt psu . NOT the kingwin . The Corsair CX 430 is ideal for this budget $35 with rebate
