It's an AMD with unknown cooling and an A320M Micro board......

I would leave it as it is :)

AMD's don't overclock like Intel, they're designed to automatically overclock when thermal headroom is available.

But as @Scott says, you need to have a build capable of handling the extra heat and power required for overclocking, which yours isn't I'm afraid.

Okay i guess i will sell my PC soon and maybe get £500-600, how much extra cash do you think i'll need for a decent PC that will maybe run 160fps

If you plugged in a 1660S I think you would be pleasantly surprised.

Overclocking an AMD chip will often net you zero, often it's detrimental to gaming performance. The system you have is fine, power wise, for 1080p but if you want that bit extra out of it the easiest way to do that is plug in a more suited GPU.

Starting from scratch, if you budgeted £1k that would get you a great system.
