    The best would be to simply change the cpu, it must limit the depth HD4870, It could take the 2.6GHz. but hey, it's still light I think, you can always try.
    If it still will not change should be cpu to a phenom II if you want to keep your motherboard (if it's am2 +) or alternatively from at Intel.

    Yes it's amd 2 +. I intend to just take a phenom later but for now I just want to take a month or two with this processor is for her that I wanted to try to overclock. And as I never overclock I do not know how to do it so if someone could help me.

    I doubt the BIOS options leave much room for overclocking.
    If you can, raise the CPU freq to 250MHz, lower the HT multi to 4x, set the RAM speed to 266MHz (DDR533), lock the PCI-E at 100MHz, disable all Spread Spectrum settings, disable Cool 'n Quiet, raise the CPU voltage slightly (if necessary).

    That will put the CPU at 2.875GHz & the RAM at approx 667MHz again...IF you can do it.
    Searching the forums can help you to find your answers more quickly
