Default Information on Overclocking a Duo E7500

Hi, my friend plans on getting a new graphics card, (Probably an MSI gtx 460 Hawk) to play games like crysis and SC 2.

Here is his current PC:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @2.93GHz
RAM: 4.0 Gb Doucle Channel DDR2 @ 399 MHz
Motherboard: ASUS Computer P5QL/EPU (LGA775)
Graphic Card: Ati Radeon HD 4350 (He will be changing it)

So I wanted to know if his PC was worth changing the graphic card to play games with high graphic or he need a new GPU and everything.
And if he should Overclock is GPU and if it would really help. I heard he could easily clock it at 3.33Ghz, but would he need additional cooling. (He runs at 37C idle)

Also, I know nothing about Overclocking so what program should he use.

If you need additional information tell me I'll get it.


Thanks,
Chuck
