Hi bud, If the power supply you have is the one listed in your specs then I would think long and hard about overclocking. Are you sure it's only 220 watts?

IF this is a laptop then the answer to this is don't overclock..Heat is a known issue with laptops so Overclocking is really not advisable, thats if Acer even allow it in Bios.

And as above 220watt? PSU? sounds suss to me.

You really won't see any benefit of overclocking with that system, and the cooling in the tower will NOT be adequate (if it isn't already).
If you want better performance, you would be better off picking up a better PSU and graphics card.

I would recommend going with a good name brand, like Corsair or Antec. You don't need a hugely expensive one, but don't skimp on it either. The PSU is what provides the system with power, and if it's borked it can damage components or just not work.

How slimline is it? I can't seem to find much info on it.

The width of a regular PSU is around 6"
