Read some guides specific to your platform (CPU/motherboard) and do it yourself.

Yes!...........
You can do it your own after some minimal study on overclocking through the internet...........
I have done a small OC experiment to my i7 3770 up to 4.1Ghz with out any manual over volting....(I haven't had any OC experience before)..........

HD space: 300 GB

According to your specs you have a Branded PC........
So I think you have to double check your MB BIOS for overcloking settings...........(Most branded MBs do not let you to OC any thing through the BIOS)(Most branded MBs do not have OCing feature)..........
If it is not a OC supporting MB you have to buy new MB to OC your CPU.........
For the GPU ,.....
I think you can OC it through the AMD Catalyst Driver................

overclocking a branded PC might just be like stepping hard on gas of a Prius..it will cost you more or even ruin everything at once :P

OCing the GPU with the Catalyst voids the warrenty.. :/
