Your processor is not very important to gaming. You'll only see a benefit if your CPU was so slow that it prevented your GPU from reaching its full potential. If your system is well balanced, you do not need to overclock for gaming.

If you post your video card, we can give you more specific advice.
 
Depends on the game, but generally speaking it can help increase performance a little bit. See below for examples:
