we dont know what your motherboard is so we cant tell you if you can overclcock it. if you dont know what the motherboard is download cpu-z and it should say what it is at the top.

If this system is one you bought froma shop then it is highly unlikely you will be able to overclock it as it will have a generic power supply which having a good power supply is really important when it comes to overclocking.

what psu does it have? if you do not know then you will have to look at the label on the power supply.

Yeah, at the moment I am deciding if its worth overclocking. Its NOT a "shop" system, I have assembled it myself and this is the second re-build for upgrading its had.

As greenbrucelee pointed out your PSU is poor quality. I would suggest replacing it with a good quality 550W minimum unit before attempting any OC'ing.
