& would i see any noticeable 'real world' benefits?

I don't know too much about the overclocking world, other than 1) it makes your PC faster & 2) done too much it can have a detrimental effect.

This is what i'm working with (copied & pasted from the site/s i bought from):

* Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 880G Socket AM3 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
* Gigabyte GTX 460 OC 1GB GDDR5 OC Edition Dual DVI HDMI PCI-E Graphics Card
* Crucial 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz/PC3-10600 Memory
* AMD PHENOM2 X6 1055T AM3 125w

I wouldn't want anything on its limits, but i'm just curious.

What heatsink do you have? If you use the stock one, you will have heating problems.

What do you do with your computer? If you are gaming, video editing, it does help. But if you just surf the web, there's no point.

I don't OC, but, just trying to help. :)

I'd say you could OC from 2.8GHz to 3.2GHz/3.4GHz without breaking a sweat and only a small vcore bump
