Default GByte ex58-ud5 advice please

Hi Canuks,
You guys were a big help 4years ago (jeez time flies) when I built my last system.
I can't afford a full rebuild so was wondering if anybody in Canuk land can give me some serious overclocking advice on my system?
The wife has asked what I want for Christmas of her and the family so was going to ask Santa for a GTX 770 and then overclock the rest of the system. It runs cool and at stock is stable as a rock for 4years.
Current build is -
CPU
Intel Corei7 920 D0 Step SLBEJ
MOBO
GByte EX58-UD5 MoBo
RAM
6GB COR DDR3 1600MHz HEAT/S
PSU
850W SEASONIC S12D-850 SEMODUA
Cooling
CORSAIR H50 CWCH50-1 INTEL/AMD
GFX
2GB EVGA GTX660 SC PCI-E
My Case is Coolermaster Cosmos S
and monitor - Samsung SyncMaster 2233 - 120hz 3d - its resolution is onpy 1680x1050 that keeps fps up quite nicely.
I'm thinking of OCing simply because I'm not sold on buying any of the new gen consoles and will upgrade my PC this time next year.
Cheers guys.
The HABS rule.
PZ

I have not clocked a Gigibite But have clocked EVGA and ASUS.

Go to there forums site look up how to update BIOS.
Update BIOS to latest fore your board. Check on Board or motherboard box fore board revisions.

Fist step.
