    Generally you can't overclock prebuilt systems as the bios usually lacks the options to change multiplier, voltage and other settings needed.
    Assuming that isn't the case I would google how to overclock a core2 quad cpu.

    My opinion is you should just upgrade the cpu and motherboard as even with a moderate overclock it will bottleneck your beastly gpu.
