I want to overclock my pc for gaming, as i don't have the best cpu/gpu. 
Specs: Intel i3-3220 3.3ghz

Intel hd graphics 2500 32mb vram

8 gb DDR3 ram

I just want a little boost.. can someone help? In my bios, there is a tab for overclocking, or should i use a program? Im assuming the bios would be safer but im not sure.

I can also boost my vram to 256 mb in the bios. This is a desktop computer, that was built. Not a preconfigured PC.

This one of several sites, but best advice is to go to the mother board makers site.  Many times there are blogs with info.

According to cpu specs on the net that cpu is locked at 33 multiplier. The only overclock you can do is raise the FSB and that is typically not very much as the entire system becomes unstable. Having a unlocked cpu multiplier is a far better way to overclock the cpu. Having all ram slots populated is also a issue with overclocking. Based off latency and timings it's easier to overclock a system with 2 ram sticks instead of 4. As Phill suggested to join a forum of seasoned overclockers is your best bet. You're really diving into a more technical difficult topic.
