hello guys , i need to make a request first then a number of questions :) 

so i want to over clock my GPU gigabyte GTX 560 but i have a gamma 500 watt power supply if that safe to over clock if so which software i may use ? to over clock

what are the limits for core and memory for this card

and whats recommended limits ?

is this worth it to over clock is this will make any differences ? because i want to increase performance

thanks for reading

The usual limit depends on how hot your GPU can get to to before it gets too hot (or melts lol) which usually depends on your airflow in your case and room temperature.. try not to go higher than 80 C

And yes overclocking will most definitely increase performance. It's what it's for. With a 500w PSU, you'll be fine.

try going to zotac's website and downloading firestorm. I assume it works for most models it was a free download from zotac when i got my card (got from website without any sort of registration) its very simple shows temperature and has slide bars for fan speed / clock speed. Worth checking out, like i said not sure if it works for all models but im sure it wouldnt hurt to try its very decent and easy to understand. my favorite so far.

First of all, while overclocking, run furmark burn in test to make sure temperatures are in order. Then, overclock slowly. Don't do big jumps (like 2004 - 2140), but instead little (2004-2014).

You can't overclock without furmark stress test. Temperature will not rise unless the card is under load.
