Does your motherboard support overclocking ?

The easiest way is to slowly increase the front side bus.

If you have know idea how to overclock, you better start doing research.

There are many overclocking forums.

In my opinion, there is no reason to OC todays graphics cards.

And you might consider waiting til you get a decent power supply.

The board supporting it is about CPU overclocking, not GPU overclocking. They are 2 completely different subjects. Afterburner is for GPU. It has nothing to do with CPU. The best advice I ever got about overclocking was 'if you can't afford to replace it, don't overclock it.' I suggest you really spend the time reading up on it before you try it. You have to know what the settings do and also how they affect other settings and components. For your CPU, do not use software, do it by hand in BIOS. And know what is going to happen before you change anything.

Based on what you listed as the motherboard,

overclocking is not going to happen, as none of the settings required are available.
