Hello and welcome to the forums, single365!

Firstly, please fill up your systems specs properly by following this tutorial:-

System Info - See Your System Specs

Secondly, I would NOT, in good faith, advise that you overclock your system, especially if you do not have an adequate cooling system for it (like aftermarket coolers etc.).

You may cause irrepearrable damage to your system components, and given the age of your system, cause it to fail even more quickly.

With that being said, if you do insist on going down that path though, may i direct you to two excellent overclocking/monitoring utilities for AMD cards in Windows 7.

Depending on whatever OC you could achieve, you'd be lucky to see an extra 5 or so FPS increase - so High settings might be beyond your reach anyway.

Unfortunately your specs are the reason 'lots of games' aren't performing well with high specs.

You're just going to have to lower some details. That's going to give you a more realistic performance improvement than a mild OC of your card.

And what do you mean by 'No cooling system available' - do you mean the card is passive - no fan?
